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.

Check out a fun way to turn it into a distressed background as seen in this layout.

To create this look, lightly distress the background with black soot distress ink, then sand around the edges with the Tim Holtz sanding block.
