Tinkerin' Challenge #7

Tinkerin' Challenge #7:

Using the stipple brush.

When creating this card, I used the stipple brush. When using ink to distress, the stipple brush creates a different texture/pattern on the paper verses my typical sponge daubing. To create this effect, generously brush the stipple brush over the exclusive ink pad of choice. Next, with pressure, brush the ink over the edge of the paper. Note: it is a good idea to have a scrap piece of paper underneath your work space. Above, I stippled the edges of the White Daisy cardstock with Clover Meadow exclusive ink, and the edges of the sentiment with Tulip Exclusive Ink. Enjoy!
