Shabby Chic using the peeled paper method

I had a 'play' this morning - experimenting with the Shabby Chic method of ATC's using the peeled off paper method.

You use a sheet of dictionary paper and glue it to the ATC. Once dry you stick on masking tape randomly - then peel it off and it takes of layers of paper.

Then you apply ink using ink pads or any other method and leave to dry.

You stamp images onto the ATC or in the above I stamped and added an image.

Once dry you can add other embellishments and sandpaper

Both these ATC's are darker in real life - the flash of the camera has lightened them.

They look far more textured too.

I rather liked experimenting just for the sake of it!
