Vintage Violet Wishing Well Post Card

When I trim my post cards
for posting usually I leave
an edge around the card.
When using a copy in
my own projects my goal
is to make the post card
or cabinet card  look
like it has traveled  thru life
just like the original would of.
So having a little room around
the image to work with is
I use a good quality paper,
then fold my edges and
tear gently giving
the card or photo a soft
edge.  Next I use
one of Tim Holtz Distress Inks
to color the edges and parts
of the image.
It gives a piece a more
authentic vintage feeling
and blends into your
projects seamlessly.
