Technique Tuesday!!!

Welcome to Technique Tuesday!!  

Today I am featuring the Faux Linen Technique that I demonstrated at my Technique University class last night.  This makes a wonderful background for shabby chic cards....

TECHNIQUE INSTRUCTIONS:  ~ Stamp a background on glossy white cardstock  ~ Sand the cardstock in a vertical direction  ~ Sand the cardstock horizontally  ~ Keep sanding in each direction until all the gloss is gone  ~ Sponge the cardstock with ink (the darker the ink, the more obvious the sanded lines will be)  ~ Stamp additional images on your background if desired  ~ Sand the cardstock again in both directions to lighten the sponged color and get the Faux Linen appearance

THANKS and as always...

Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'!
