Friends of Speedy TV Challenge


Happy Monday to you! We have a fun challenge for you today from Friends of Speedy TV. ...use Distressing on your card.  There are several ways to do distressing, the process of giving a card a worn look.  Probably, the 3 most common ways are with inks, with special tools, and  with stamps. I have used a combination of distressing on my card. I used a distress tool on the edge of the orange mat and also added some distress ink on the edges.  For the image layer, I simply tore the edges and then sponged with ink. For the image I used a mask over the stamped area and sponged the background to add a distress look to the sky.  I cannot wait to see how you use Distressing Techniques. If you enter the challenge this week you have a chance to win "Celebrate Big" by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamp shown below.
