This is the beginning of my Distress Ink collection. Right now the pads are sitting in a media storage unit for CD's or DVD's or something like that. I hope to move them to my cassette tape storage rack, though, if they will fit.
The pads are upside down with each of the corresponding blending foams on top of the appropriate pad. I cut 2 1/4" x 3/8" strips of white cardstock and inked them with each of the colors. The strips were adhered to the pads using Glossy Accents. The idea for the colored strips came from Serafinascrapping's gallery. She has hers labeled very nicely with the name of the color on the strip, but I just needed to be able to see the color itself.
The media storage unit actually works very well for storing small items and I have though about getting a second one. Above my Distress Ink pads are my Perfect Pearls and on the shelf below are my Smooch Inks, Martha Stewart micro beads, and Martha Stewart glitters.
