I also really like distress inks but I have been thinking about trying chalk inks. Anybody like those?
Love love LOVE them!!!!!!!!!! I use them exclusively now,,,they go on much smoother, have a more matte finish and are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy to use! The pads are spongy though, not quite as durable as distress ink pads,,,,,but you don't have to press as hard either,,,,,,,don't care for the cats eyes, I like the versa-magic dew drops best,,,,,
I thought my pad was starting to flake off and then suddenly, one layer peeled off,,,,leaving the rest,,,,not sure if it's DESIGNED to do that, but it was awesome, because the rest of the pad underneath was like brand new,,,,,they do seem more durable than the cat's eyes,,,
the cat's eyes don't do that, and the whole pad falls off,,,,,
love love LOVE them!
