I will continue with my favourite thing - tearing, distressing and making things look mucky and old! (Take a look at me in the mirror and you will see something similar!!!)

The CSD blog will today host a challenge about "How fake we can be". It is not about boob-jobs or tummy tucks (I wish!!) but about how to use faux techniques!
Head over there to check the challenge and the prizes out!!!

Ok, here I have gone to town on the distressing technique - something that I love to do!

1. I have torn edges, wrinkled the paper and going over it with Distress inkpads to make it look much older than it really is.
2. I have distressed the actual photo by scraping around the edges on the actual picture to give it a bit more "worn" look.
3. The picture itself has been modifed by Karin - a scrapping friend in Sweden. The colours make the picture look a bit older. (For all you iPhones people out there - try the hipstamatic app and get lovely old looking photos!!)

Bazzill kraft cardstock
Pappern paper from Tim Holtz paper pad
