I love to make distressed backgrounds, and today I'll show you how. Actually, it's not a background this time, it's an overlay over a heat embossed image. :) I chose this amazing stamp, Ha en underbar födelsedag and picked some colors to make a grey metal look for a masculine card.
Stamp and heat emboss the image.
Mask off with blue painter's tape for delicate surface.
Distress the background.
Pick up some Perfect Pearls and swipe over the distressed area.
Gently wipe off the excess with a dry paper towel.
Peel off the painter's tape.
And a close up to see the gorgeous shimmer.
