There are many ways to distress and age a project, from inking and sanding to scraping along the edges with a paper distresser or a sharp pair of scissors. We will be looking forward to seeing how you distress your creation!

Andrea used paint and stencils to add a distressed feel to her card. The fabulous sentiment is a stamp from Riley and Company called “No One is You” and the fishtail shapes are from a die set by My Favorite Things called Stitched Fishtail Frames.
Cathie used the Tammy Tutterow Designs Posie Parts and the Shabby Posies die sets to create her flowers along with Fossilized Amber and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks to create the soft colors. The beautiful sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Sentiments stamp set.
Emma loves using all of her Tim Holtz Distress products and for this tag all about ocean life, she combined Distress Paints and Distress Crayons to create the background on an Etcetera Tag. She also used Distress Marker Pens to colour the octopus from the Sea Life stamp set.
Macarena made a distressed golden card using Mosaic stencil and Ground Espresso Distress Ink with Opal Magic Violet – Gold Paint. The focal point is a Paper Doll in the Ornate Frame #2 and Botanical buutterflies
Maura reached right for her Distress Oxide inks in worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, and cracked pistachio along with Carabelle Studios Les Roses de la Vie set by BIrgit Koopsen to work in a new art journal.
