Distressed much?

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting the Distressing Technique.

This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from Ronda’s Blog, you are on the right track!

I wanted to showcase how I create a distressed look background, and the Yesterday and Today paper packet was the perfect paper for this! Here is the finished card...keep reading to learn how to create this distressed look.

To create this distressed background, I started off by scrunching up a piece of the Yesterday and Today patterned paper. I then used a spray bottle to lightly spritz it with water. I then uncrumpled it, leaving it slightly bent and messy, and ran my Espresso and Heather ink pads over the paper to ink the ridges in the crumpled paper.

Once this was done, I left it to dry and then attached it to my card base. I then added one of the beautiful Yesterday and Today stickers and a simple sentiment as well as some gold bling.
