thank you

I started my thank you cards from my birthday, they will be late but I have to start getting them out.  I pulled out the Thank You set from Flourishes, I just love the background stamp and tulip, they work so perfectly together.  I first stamped the background image in black ink and then using my Tim Holtz distress inks (walnut stain & tea dye) and a dauber, I sponged around the edges and then worked my way toward the center.  Once I was happy with the distressing, I stamped the tulip and colored it in using Copic Markers (R29 & YG17).  This is a 4.25 inch square card.

Beautiful! You've got so much talent!
Do you use Tm Holtz dye often? Is the distress ink different then other inks?
