Now for a more vintage look you can ink & distress the edges with a Tim Holtz distressing ink applied with a foam wedge or foam of some sort. Sue also has a wonderful range of colours available in the Tim Holtz distress ink available through the shop.
Now looking back over these pic"s I probably should have arranged for a hand double!!...LOL
I really hope you may get a chance to give this technique a go & I look forward to seeing your edge distressing creations in the scraploot gallery!!
