CTMH Product Spotlight Blog Hop: Distressing Tools

This month, a small group of CTMH consultants have joined together to show you how to de-stress by distressing. (This hop makes a complete circle, so you can jump on anywhere you like. If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived from Wendy's blog and you'll visit Luisa or Lori next.)   
 For this card, I used the edge distresser to roughen up the edges of the card base and the sentiment piece.  I used the direct-to-paper ink distressing technique on each banner and the chipboard flower (from the Footloose Complements).
 To make the Lagoon patterned banners pop off the Lagoon background, I sanded them with the sanding block.  It sanded off the edges and showed the white core.  A little lucky distressing happened when the edge of the banner pulled up and curled (thanks to the sanding block; not intentional at all!).  I decided to ink the edges in Cocoa to give them even more definition.
I also pounced the sentiment strip with Cocoa ink and the black stubble tool to make it look a bit sandy. 

Now don't stress; head to Luisa's blog or Lori's next!
