So Scrapbook News & Review had this technique as their video of the day
I had a few free minutes so whipped up my own samples.
The top one is Frayed Burlap, Stormy Sky & Aged Mahogany Distress Inks
stamp is Stampin Up Vague Vintage.
Bottom one is Frayed Burlap, Bundled Sage & Aged Mahogany Distress Inks
stamp from Club Scrap Fossils
Easy Technique and stunning results
