Faux Linen

You will need

Glossy paper

Sponge on your ink - I used vintage photo distress ink

using sandpaper scratch card in one direction

Turn it round and scratch in opposite direction

You can use it as it is as background paper or add more ink. I added aged mahogony - I've put more ink on the left hand side and brightened it up digitally so you can see the scratches better.

I then cut my card up and one piece I added background scrolls (I'll use this piece to make a card) My next piece I made into a skinny by stamping and embellishing. My final piece I made in to a topper by stamping on tissue and framing
