Tooling Around: Distressing Tool pt. 2

Hi all!

I’m over on Paper Crafts Connection again today.

I’m talking about the Distressing Tool from Prima Marketing.

And I’m showing these.

Head over there again to learn the basics about the tool. Comment on my post over there for a chance to win a Distressing Tool of your own! (A big thank you to Prima Marketing for providing the prize!).

I wanted to share with you today over here a few more projects I made with the Distressing Tool. I tried to use some different surfaces with the tool for these ones.

So meet #1.

I used the tool’s file and one of the tool’s changeable heads to distress the metal sign (from GCD Studios) here. I just rubbed the tool real quick over the edges. It didn’t take much rubbing to make it look nice and worn.

The look reminds me of old metal advertising signs you see at at the flea markets and in antique stores. It’s a rare day when you see one in Mint condition (or a total fake…lol)!

Meet #2.

I used the tool to make the texture marks on the “&” sign. I brushed one of the changeable heads over it horizontally a few times to make the horizontal lines.

I also used it distress the edges of the wooden hearts (from Studio Calico). That’s something that really excites me about this tool. It takes to wood really well so it definitely opens up some new crafty possibilities in my world.

And meet #3.

I used the Distressing Tool to distress the bottom of the chipboard words here. I also created some scuff marks on the orange patterned paper by rubbing one of the tool’s heads over it a few times.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on my post on Paper Crafts Connection for a chance to win a Distressing Tool of your own.

See you again soon.
