Hi all! I participate in the technique lovers challenge over at SCS from time to time and last weeks technique was faux burnt edges.
It's all done with ink and a dauber or sponge. I thought I'd give it a try and here is my result.
The background paper is made by using distress inks, water, crinkled up paper and an iron. I used Vintage photo distress ink and water to color the ivory paper that the ship collage is stamped on. The deckled rectangle nestabilities were used to cut out the image.
I used a fingertip dauber to add three layers of different color distress inks to give the edges a burnt look.
This technique is actually pretty easy and fun to do. It goes well with the ship collage stamp from The Angel Company or any nautical/map stamps. Actually, I can think of a few other ways to use this technique - hmmm, might be worth another try on some camping scrapbook pages!
Thanks for stopping by!
