WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF MONDAY IDEA.
Today's idea is to create a faux burnt edge. I used to burn the edges of wedding invitations and decoupage them to a decorative board and paint flowers as gifts for brides. The burnt edges were to make them look aged. I used a candle and had lots of burnt fingers along the way.
This technique is done with distress inks!
There is an explanation of the technique here
Close up of edges.
Pretty simple technique. Rip the paper toward you so it leaves ragged edges.
I used Frayed Burlap first, then Black Distress ink, just on the very edges, to achieve
the burnt edge look.
