Vintage Look Lace Tree




I made this card at an SU stamp camp on Sunday on plain white cs. When the DT Monday challenge came in from SnSS to make a distressed or vintage look card, I took Sahara Sand ink and sponged it all over the card to give it a vintage look, then pulled the edges across the ink pad. I really like the finished look better than the white.

I like the white version but the sahara sand does give a more dramatic effect.
