Paint and re-inker
The new distressing kit from CTMH comes with paint. The real cool thing about that is you can add re-inker to it and make any color you want. Add a few drops of the re-inker to the paint and mix. Don't add too much or it prevents it from drying so dark colors won't work very well but its great for soft colors.
On this card I added pansy purple to the paint and colored the dimensional element flower frame. Great way to color chipboard and the like.
Also on the card I made the lines on the cardstock using my friskar trimmer and my dry embossing tool. Line your cardstock on the trimmer and run the tool down the groove on the trimmer. Then I flipped it over and sanded it with the new sanding tool that came in the distressing kit. You can make lots of cool designs on your cardstock this way.
