I thought this could work for the current Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is distressed/sanded. This card has both
It started along the lines of Tim Holtz Tag # 3 from last year (plaid backgound using glossy card and alcohol inks - great fun)
I then stamped over it, and when the ink was dry I sanded it in places. It made the ink fade, but left a mess of ink on my sanding block :(
The edges of the card have been distressed with the Tonic Edge Distressor. The frame is coloured with distress ink, then overstamped.
