Default Distress Ink experiment

I needed a visual for myself after research and viewing so many different Distress Ink tutorials.

This experiment involves DI's Festive Berries, Gesso, matte ModPodge and 3D Crystal Lacquer. In each case, the DI was mixed with about a nickel size of the three different mediums. I used a foam brush to apply each mixture to the cardstock which had a matte finish to it.

My favorite is the Crystal Lacquer, although it has the most brush stroke to it. My husband and a friend of ours does some major painting, so I picked their brains today. Their suggestions included using a fine synthetic brush while using a light hand application; an airbrush; applying the DI first and then pouring the lacquer over it.

Other ideas?
