#CC3C - Distress Glitter Technique

So on to challenge #2, check out Linda Ledbetter's blog for all the details. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this challenge with a $25 gift certificate!

For my project I began by covering a piece of chipboard with patterned paper. I used a #5 Craft Tag as a template to cut the chipboard. Next I sanded and applied distress ink to the edges of the tag. For the letters I followed Tim's distress glitter technique on page 56 of his book. I finished by coloring a piece of linen ribbon with distress stain and there you have it. Thanks for stopping by!
