Simple way to Distress and a Halloween project for you!

Hi Jen here with a really quick tip/trick for you when you are distressing your altered projects. First tip is to save those make-up sponges ladies! That’s right they can become your best friend when it comes time to distressing your altered art and it’s also a great way to re-purpose something that was going to hit the trash can.

All you need is an old make-up sponge and some distress ink (I used black). Simply tap your sponge into the ink and then rub lightly onto the edge of your project – it’s that simple! For those of you that like visuals – here’s some photos ;)








For the finishing touches I used the cricut Mini Monsters cartridge, some GCD Paper (backsides from various lines) some vinyl and googley eyes. Here's my completed project:
