Best distress

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:34 AM

I know some of you are back here looking for the paper bead tutorial and I promise I will post one sometime in the next week. My Batteries on my camera are dead and although usually I take all my pics with my phone I think clearer camera pics would be better for a tutorial. I did however make this card for the challenge over at Cards For Men the theme was to do a wild west card. I just got this set ( ive wanted it forever and scored it for $4.00 ! Go Me!!! Fist pump) so I wanted to ink it up. This is a super simple card that just uses a lot of distressing . Ive tried a lot of things for distressing until I found this
little gadget at Beverlys for $1.49. I got mine two years ago and its still going strong. All you do is run it along the edges of the paper and the blade distresses. How cool is that? Speaking of cool I hope you all are staying inside keeping cool. Its been HOT here!
