Cut out a piece from a Manila folder. Colored the paper with antique lined and vintage photo Distress Ink. Then dropped on water and dried with heat tool for the spotted faux bleach appearance. Used a distressing tool to rough up the edges and a thin file to scratch up the paper. Used brushed corduroy Distress ink directly to the edges and on a cut-n-dry foam pad to darken the scratches. Stamped flourishes with aged mahogany Distress ink and heat set with the heat tool.
Embossed a Christmas tree image (a cuttlebug folder) on green card stock with a white core. Used fine sand paper to expose the white core on parts of the raised areas and colored them with red metallic rub-ons.
