I've spent some time working on a technique explained to me by Tracy but originally by Ann Pennington. I've experimented as I usually do in trying to find alternatives to the original (in this case Ranger Distress Ink Pads).
Above is a Photoshow of the samples I did using Ranger Distress ink pads, Nik Bantok Ink pads, Adirondack ink pads and finally Big 'n Juicy ink pads.
The Distress ink did lift off more readily but in all honesty they all worked just as well, so I think we can safely say that any dye based ink pad is worth trying with. As soon as I can make the time I will do a video tutorial on this technique.
