Distress stains and spraying ink all over the place as lecture topic but thankfully only stains as technique part. I don't "love" any of these and all would be better stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink which surely is in shorter supply worldwide than his markers (which will be MIA from a lot of craft rooms when he discusses Monday). I'm not into the "layered grunge" which these for the most part are but I did find out what to do with the big 12x12 pad of Kraft Resist (tag on left) that I bought because it was on sale, and stamping with the picket fence stain (gate) is kinda cool. Some of these might be okay for vintage but not sure I'm feelin' the love although I do love my stains. No plans to buy spray ink... but Monday is distress markers... already snagged a dozen of these and can't wait to try 'em!
