AND CLICK HERE to check out the video.

Today Char Dobson has a wonderful technique for our 9th day….Antiquing!

First, cut your image and then crinkle it.

And Sand. Char sands in this dish because it helps catch some of the dust (such a great idea!):

Embellish it….

And Voila!!! You have a gorgeous project:

Here are a few more examples Char created for us today. See how antiquing looks great as the background?

And these gorgeous wine bottles!!! How cool does that Black Magic look???

So are you ready for yesterdays winner???????

    Lovely idea. That antiquing makes them look so real.

    Great technique…love the look it creates.

  49. Susan says:

    I love your paper. When I originally saw it, I didn’t have time to get any. I made it a point to return to the store a few days later, intent on getting a piece or two. I bought 45 sheets!

    Love that mitten banner! Such a simple technique, too!
