Triple Scratch Faux Linen

Here’s a technique for a background with lots of texture.

Supplies: Glossy White CS, Ink ( I used Ranger Distress Vintage Photo and Aged Mohogany), sponge, 100 grit sandpaper, stamp from Long Time Friend (SU!)

Step #1

Sponge Vintage Photo ink onto Glossy CS

Step #7

You can leave your background the way it is or you can add an image. I used the little flower from Long Time Friend from Su! I stamped it in a diagonal pattern with Vintage Photo ink.
