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???????
