Distressing your Photographs using Hole Punchers

Some of you must be thinking, am I out of my mind?....lol! Well, when my husband sees me doing this, he asked the same question. My answer is, this is "me"!

To distress your photographs using this technique, simply just punch holes randomly on the corners of the photograph. Then, tear part of it away. Leaving a "chewed off " look on the edges. Ink the punched area with some distress ink.

It might not look great in the picture above and you might be a little hesitate to try this now. But I bet you'll like the effect when I upload my project tomorrow. It really adds some cool effects to your project.
