Shabby Chic

I love the ragged torn look of this swap I received waaaaaaay in 2013 at the Baltimore Regional convention I attended.  The stampin' distress tool creates this shabby look.  
The boxes are simply ink applied directly to the clear block and stamped onto the cardstock.  It's clear block stamping.
Two more examples of clear block stamping here and here.

Try block stamping out today!

thank you

Headed to work and then to a team meeting tonight.  I needed something to take to share - nothing motivates like procrastination.   

Hopefully I come back with some great techniques, tips and swaps to share with you.
