Venturing Into Distress Ink

I been stalking Oh My Crafts online store for a while in October 2011. The items I am looking for is distress inks as they offered the cheapest price of all the online stores I visit. Furthermore, they have recently launched double dip discount coupon whereby you can have discount on selected items follow by the store wide discount coupon which means you save twice as much! Imagine that you can get the distress ink at USD$3.84 at Oh My Crafts after both discounts while other online stores are selling at at least USD$3.99. It maybe little but for me, after exchange rate conversion, it means a lot and not to mention taking shipping cost into account as well.

However, due to the cheap price, most of the inks has been sold out. I tried to e-mail them to ask when they will restock the inks in late October 2011 but they have no idea when is the next shipment coming in. That really disappointing a bit as those discount coupons will expire and you never know if they come up with another discount coupons.

I still stalk Oh My Crafts online store occasionally after that to see if they have restocked the inks. Finally, my efforts paid off in early November 2011 as the new shipment has been arrived and most of the colors are in stock! I quickly select the colors I want which is broken china and tea dye as starter. Since I am newly venturing into distress ink, I also bought the blending tool. Payment is made on the same day I order the items but Oh My Crafts did not process my order until two (2) days later. I guess it is because of year end and the high volume of orders. Even the processing took some time and finally I am informed that the package is shipped on 06 November 2011.

After patient waiting of ten (10) days, finally the package arrive to my doorstep today! Now, I can use them on my new projects which I have on my mind. Hopefully the outcome is nice as I afraid I am not too good in using the distress ink.
