Thursday's Technique - Distressing

31 Days of Holiday Cards Continues!

I am a distressing nut! Add a little distress to your card today. Burnish those edges! Add some stippling to that nice clean image! Ink the edges! Add some aging using a lemon juice or a tea technique. Scrunch it up! Rough it up!

This is a chance to work out all those frustrations. Remember stressed is just desserts backwards!

Today, I had lots of stress to work out so I distressed, inked and burnished edges and crumpled lots on this little mouse tag.
