Down & Dirty at PaperWorks Co!

**2nd Post today - Please scroll down for my Growing In Unity post for your chance to comment & Win!**

Today is Recipe Tuesday at PaperWorks Co and we're asking you to do some distressing! I love the distress look and probably distress nearly everything I make in some way. Sometimes I get more into like my tag today but other times it might just be running some ink along the edges or using my distress tool to rough up the edges of my paper a bit. Anything you do to distress your tag or any diecut shape works!!!

For my tag, I used to adorable My Valentine stamp and then used my Prisma Colored Pencils with odorless blender to color them in a vintage style. I still need a lot more practice with this technique but it sure is fun! I did both my favorites of distressing by running my edges thru my distress tool and then inked it in Vintage Photo distress ink. I hope you will join us at PWCO Blog with this week's Recipe Tuesday!
