It is finally Tuesday which means that I can post my sb.com April Round Robin layout!!! I made this with the Scraps of Darkness April kit which I love so so much.
Here is a close up of the burlap and the water distressing. I inked the burlap and then burned the edges. To achieve this water distressed look I actually did not use any water. I first distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distresser (I love that little tool so much!) and then I inked it with the rusty hinge distress ink. I then thoroughly saturated the edges with shimmerz baby breath mists and scrunched up the edges before gluing it all down. Water distressing without having to go to the sink! It allowed me much more control over which parts of the paper got wet and in the sunlight it shimmers so prettily.
