Friday Fun Tutorial Part 3

Hello!!! Im so glad to see your back for 
Part 3
of my 
Friday Fun Tutorial

Last week ended by learning the helpful and creative ways
on how to select the right Ink colors. 

Today I wanted to show you a small yet useful tip 
that could help you on your next project. 

**In order to better understand what I'm 
presenting you, I will be enlarging these images so you can 
more clearly, I hope **

Can you see a difference between these two images? The piece on the right 
is more vivid in color compared to the piece on the left. 
Why? I wanted to add a Distressing Techn{ink} to 
show more of an aged effect on my card. 

How did I do this? I took the Sanding Block from my 
Stampin Sanding System (#129367) 
and began to rub the edges and my paper to the desired level of distressing. 
What a little difference a little Sanding can make, right? 

Here's and upclose of the paper on my card in its Original state, 
in the center you see it in its Sanded form and
NOW..... to the far right.... I wanted to show you how it would look if you took 
the Sanded form, and by using a lightly inked Sponge Dobber (#101610)
in the Ink Color we chose last week (Crumb Cake #126975),
how it would really warm and change up the entire appearance. 
I applied this Sanded and Sponge Techn{ink} to each layer on my card.

Not too shabby, right? 
Well.... maybe it is a little Shabby Chic but you know that's how I roll!!! :)

Again, here is the Original versus the Distress and Antiqued final product. 
I even took my Round Corner Edge Punch to softened the edges on my front cardstock.

So there you have it class our Final Product. I think it came out wonderfully. 
Don't you think? Any questions class?

Have you tried this Distress and Antique Techn{ink}? 
If not, you should really try it sometime. In some situations it just may do wonders
for the project you are currently working on. 

And don't forget to 
 send me your before and after! 

***Email me your before and after card to***
I will enter everyone 
who submits their cards in an email into a drawing
for a free stamp and ink of my choice!

So, come on ... Stamp, Snap a photo and Click Send...

There is one more class left... so that is 5 days left to send in your entries. 

Happy Stampin
