Tutorials on Tuesdays: Making a distressed background with embossed cardstock
I'm a sucker for texture on my layouts, so I was really excited to find new papers from Bazzill. Their "Two Scoops" line features brightly colored, two-toned hues with fun textures. Use them as is, or distress them down. Either way, these papers are a new essential in my stash.
To create this look, lightly distress the background with black soot distress ink, then sand around the edges with the Tim Holtz sanding block.
