Every other Thursday is Technique Thursday on the PID yahoo group and the current technique is a distress ink technique. There are step-by-step pics and directions on the PID blog here. The top picture here is an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of the technique. The bottom picture is an atc made with one of the backgrounds I cut from the top pic. The collage image is from PID and the calligraphy stamp is from Quietfire Design.
