Roughing it Up

I just love distressing! Lately, it seems like a lot of what I do has roughed up edges. I used the Close to My Heart edging tool to do it. Then I curl up the pieces and scrape along the edges with my fingernail. If you haven't tried roughing it up, give it a shot. It gives projects a shabby, vintage feel.

Here's my roughed up card for CPS this week. This was a really fun sketch. I love looking at what the other designers and readers come up with, too.





Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
