Shabby Chic

The one thing I can't bring myself to do is rough up the edges of my paper or you know rip or lightly shred them so this challenges is not really for me. But I did wrinkle up my paper and smear ink on it. Hope that shabbied it up a little. I'm too much of a neat freak to mess my work up too much. Distressing with ink is about as far as I go and that took a long time to get me to use brown. That was like dirtying my image up.  I like it now and do it often but I don't think the shredded edge thing will ever be seen on a card of mine.  Just can't do it.  The challenge is at I Brake for Challenges. Go on over and check it out. The image is a new stamp I just received from I Brake for Stamps. I followed the directions of a Technique Junkie technique called Polished Wrinkles from a 2008 Issue.
