Distressed edges


Here's my simple technique for distressing the edges of photos or cut cardstock - any flexible surface that you want to break down.
I line up the edge of the photo along the edge of my bone folder,which has a gentle convex curve that works better than any flat surface I've tried.

Then I can file the edges, moving the file downward across the edge, with whatever file I have. I've used a glass nail file for some things, but pictured here is one of the Crafty Cat specialty craft abrasives. Easy-peasy - to be followed by the inking of your choice.
