Getting Distressed


This is the theme on Simon Says Stamp And Show this week. I have made this note pad using vintage music paper that has been further aged with distress ink. The chipboard wording has been distressed using inks and the new distress stains and then a coat of embossing powder sparingly applied to give it an even more aged look.
The edges have been inked up in gold using a dabber. A swirl stamped in distress ink finishes it off.
