Corrugated Board Mat ~ I love the grungy look of Donna's corrugated board by Zutter. I use a foam brush to apply paint to the ridges and leave the valleys the natural kraft color. When I try using a bristle brush the paint tends to go down into the valleys as well. I went back and lightly rubbed the torn edges with some distress ink.
Distrezzing ~ I distressed all the straight edges including my photo with my handy DSD Distrezz-It-All by Zutter to get the heavily distressed edges in a flash.
