I was making a project the other day, and thought I would use it as an opportunity to share one of my favorite techniques: Distress Inking
The flowers on the bottom row are plain, but the ones in the top row have been inked. Notice how the layers stand out more from one another when the edges are inked. Simply drag your inkpad around the edges of the paper at a 45 degree angle. On these flowers I used chalk ink, but most ink pads will work for this technique.
It is a simple way to add a lot of dimension to your projects. Try it!
