Use Distress Inks™ to tint and distress photos for a true vintage appeal in this card!


Tinting & Distressing Photos:
Distress Inks work on most types of black and white photos – inkjet, laser, toner copies, regular photos (laminated photos will not work/picture machines).

(2) Tint your photos by swiping the nib on to a Distress pad and color directly on to your photo using the Cut n’ Dry Nibs for detailed areas – the inks blend without leaving any lines. For larger areas/backgrounds tint using a piece of Cut n’ Dry Foam applying in a circular motion.

(3) To Distress with Antique Linen using Cut n’ Dry Foam (direct to photo). Cover the entire photo working from the outside edges in. This will not smear any of the Distress Inks colors you tinted with.

(4) Next, age the edges with Vintage Photo or Walnut Stain by applying the ink with Cut n’ Dry Foam.
