For the first time I tried Distressing the Edges Technique for Vintage Shabby Chic Challenge at Simply Create too Blog, it turned out great ...better than I excepted. Pattern paper's from Papericious Premium Edition Paper Pack A5 - Vintage Rosewood, the paper was thick with white core.
Wet the paper
tear the edges
curl the sides.
Rose was made with Heartfelt botanical Rose Stamp and die set. Colored with distress ink and gave a coat with glossy accent.
