  9. It looks great! But every time I try this it doesnt blend as smooth as yours. In fact, it doesnt blend at all the sponge just makes a mark on my page.. :(

    2. With the Distress Ink foam applicator, you need to start blending in a circular motion off the paper and then move on to the paper. Or else you see a dark square sponge mark. Maybe this is the problem for Steph?

  11. Thanks everyone for your sweet comments - means extra much since it was my first try at making a video tutorial !
    Steph, have you tried different kinds of paper? Maybe some papers are too pourous (is that how you spell it???!!! It is tough being Swedish sometimes (-:) and it might suck up the ink too fast. I used watercolorpaper here. Would love to hear from you if you tried it and if that made it easier or not.

  20. Beautiful card! I love Tim's distress inks and this technique is one of my favorites! From my experience yes, the paper has made a difference in the blending. Neenah cardstock allows it to blend very smoothly. Also the slickness of the Ranger craft sheet and starting on the sheet first and working onto the image as was stated previously helps it blend nicely. Thanks for sharing!
