I cannot wait to try the new color washes that work in a similar fashion for the same effect but more variety for colors!!
What do you think about Walnut Ink? Have you tried it? What do you do with it?

I recently discovered walnut ink in the dabber bottle from Fiberscraps and I just love it! It's wonderful to create an aged to look to my computer or stamping elements! I love crumpling up tags, smoothing them out and then dabbing the ink on. These create really fun, rustic journaling blocks!

Another really cool effect is once your spritz your paper with the tea, coffee, or walnut ink and add a layer of salt on top and let it sit for a few minutes. The salt soaks up the liquid and creates some really interesting splotchy/aged effects on your page. (Be sure and wipe all the salt off, when you are done.) The larger rock salt is ideal, but I have used regular table salt and come up with some nice effects.

Melani ... it comes both ways ... most often, tho, you will find the crystals so that you can make it up 'fresh'. Most brands of crystals do have a shelf life and can get kinda funky smelling! FiberScraps makes a neat liquid one that come in a bingo dauber type bottle. But, the same distressed ink line that you purchased a reinker for has a walnut ink color ... it works beautifully, too. Lots of options. Just find one and go for it! *Ü*
