Faux Linen

Created for the Saturday Workout Challenge. The theme is Faux Linen. The effect is created by sanding a piece of glossy cardstock with sandpaper both horizontally and vertically. I applied Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to the sanded card, and then Adirondack Eggplant around the edges. The images were stamped in Archival Grape. Stamps by Tuscan Rose and Lost Coast Designs.
