Distressing!!!!

This is my first attempt at using Tim Holtz distressing inks...kinda watched him all day on QVC, and was totally blown away by what he can do.....
So as I needed to do a card for Niges friends lad I decided to use Mikey from Charmed Crafts and enter him in their challenge....
Not quite sure if I've got this distressing right yet but practice makes perfect...and I think I need to get some more inks as only got two, didn't want to spend loads then not use them....







stuffs used
