I'm not a huge fan of pigment inks, which are necessary for this technique, but I did have one pad that I didn't get rid of. I tried using distress inks and distress paints.  Both worked, but Jennifer's right, pigment works best.

In her video, Jennifer shares her sandwich.
I thought I'd share mine since we use a different machine.
I use a Cuttlebug and my sandwich is as follows:
From Bottom to Top
A Plate
2 Tan Mats
Wood Veneer {Ink  Side Down}
C Plate

Thanks for stopping by!
