Sir Tim's Apprentice! Well???

This is my first attempt at distressing as per Sir Tim's new book 'Compendium of Curiosities'. I am pleased with the results.I used distress inks fired brick and brushed corduroy. The image is one of Tim's from his flights of fancy stamps.
I used distress inks to cover the grunge board and then stamped on it with archival ink using another 'fights of fancy' stamp. This would have looked better if the grunge had not been textured, but as it was a first try I am quite pleased.

PROBLEM!!! How does Sir Tim get the ink off his fingers?! Not sure the patients at work will appreciate my discoloured fingers. Oops! Any suggestions please!

Well show them your work, and they'll be more than happy to see you with fingers like that LOL. I love the tag :)
