Distressed Newsprint

Our challenge at Corrosive Challenges by Janet this week is to add some kind of distressing to your card. That's easy - who doesn't enjoy a little distressing?


All products from Papertrey Ink except DP, which is from Close To My Heart.  I stamped the newsprint background with gray ink on cream cardstock and then lightly swiped a light staining ink pad around the edges to "age" the newspaper a bit. The DP was scissor distressed around the edges before being added to the card. The die cut dress form was added and sparkled up a bit with a few rhinestones and the sentiment was added with foam tape (and was also inked around the edges). Fairly simple but effective, no?

There are prizes up for grabs at Corrosive so I hope you will play along and add some distressing to your card this week. Have a great day!

As others have said, this is a unique, wonderful vintage look. It looks like something I'd find in my grandmother's parlor. :) (if she had a parlor!) ;)
