Distressing is fun

Hi there! It’s me,ย Evelin here to share my blog post with you and today I want to ‘remind’ us of a tool we might have that we have forgotten ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you distress your projects? I used to do it quite a bit a while back when it was all the rage.. haha… And then my little distressing tool got ‘forgotten’ until today ๐Ÿ™‚

I like to stain the sides of the cardstock (or patterned paper) before I distress it.. I’m using Tim Holtz’s distressing tool. Just brush the distressing tool against the patterned paper to create distressed edges.

You can always go back to the same spot and distress it further if you like a more distressed look.

Another trick is to tear the paper a little after you distressed it.

And there you have it, a nicely distressed element to add to your card (or scrapbook page).

I adhered mine to this card and added the little frog prince too. An old technique to add some extra jazz to your projects ๐Ÿ™‚

And these are the sets I used that are available in the Sweet Shop.
