Distress Archival Ink Backgrounds

Hey crafty friends, welcome back! In this post, I'm sharing 2 techniques using the new Tim Holtz Mini Archival Inks! Tim originally released a set of 12 colors back in 2019. Well now that family has grown and 12 more colors from the Distress line are now available in the Archival Ink formula. If you aren't familiar with Archival Ink, it's a waterproof dye ink that is permanent on many surfaces and it won't bleed when combined with water-based inks, markers, paint or watercolors. These properties allow you to create a lot of depth and dimension when layering them.
