FWF Embossed Ink Distressing

Happy Friday the 13th Everyone!

The customers of Unity, or addicts as we are lovingly called, use Friday Friends with Flair {FWF} to display their creations made with Unity.

Angela, owner of Unity, has generously given out a secret blinkie to one lucky customer participating in the FWF to display on their blog and will choose a winner from all the visitors who posts a comment on their blog during the hop!

So as you travel along the list of participating Friends with Flair (FOUND HERE), don't hesitate to leave some love for your chance to win the above mentioned RUBBA!

Time for the UNOFFICIAL theme, IF you are interested in doing the UNOFFICIAL theme for FWF, next week a few addicts and I have picked the theme of
FLOWERS...
any image containing some sort of floral...
So let's show them off next we
ek in our FWF posts!

This is UNOFFICIAL and NOT required. If you want to do the theme, great ~ if not, perfectly okay with me! And if you have a Great Idea for the UNOFFICIAL theme, please let me know in the comments section.

I have been asked on how I do my ink distressing on my card edges like those seen in this card here:
It is fairly simple, but easiest understood with visuals, so I put together another video tutorial.



Here are the finished cards, showing each of the 3 ways I showed in the video which also has my example of dry embossing for this weeks unofficial theme:

1. Direct to Paper Technique:2. Circular Sponging:3. Dab Sponging:
Stuff Used for these Cards: Stamps: {Unity} October '09 KOM ... Wherever you go!
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, SU Basic Black, Palette Burnt Umber
Paper: Georgia Pacific, Embassy
