Happy 4th of July!

A quick post today and distressing 101 and faux quilting. There are different distressing tools available, but my most favorite is my bone folder. Use the wide part forcefully back and forth to stress the edges. It will bend the paper - which leads us to the direct-to-paper technique.

It truly means taking your ink pad directly to your paper. More ink will show up where the bends and folder are.

An unbent sample of direct-to-paper is HERE on this card.

I punched out random images with a 1-1/4" square punch, and ran it through the big shot, top note die. Does it look like a quilt??

Have a happy and safe 4th of July and take time to appreciate America (and have something delicious on the grill!).
