It was really fun distressing this new "Night Owl" DSP with the new Distressing Kit.. rub ink from the kit over the crumpled paper, spritz with a water bottle, then distress the edges with the tools that come in the kit!! Distressing kit is on pg 195 in the regular catalog. I also sprayed the spider web background with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer Paint (pg 195) in a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead and ENJOY THE BLOG TOUR!
