My First Photo Tutorial

Just wanted to invite you over to the DeNami Design blog today to check out my first-ever photo tutorial! I'm showing two different ink distressing techniques. Both are quite easy! Here's a little sneak peek at the CAS cards I made with my tutorial steps:

I'd love to hear your honest opinion about it, if you care to look. I am such a newbie at this!

I'm entering these cards in the Paper Sundaes Clean and Simple Challenge.

Also, two DeNami reminders:
  • Our Product Spotlight stamp from this week, the Tweety Bird Border, is still on sale at 10% off the regular price (but only through next Tuesday, so don't delay placing your order if you were thinking about adding it to your collection!).


  • This month's DeNami challenge, a sketch challenge, went live on Monday and is open through February 27. Be sure to play along with at least one DeNami stamp for a chance to win a $20 DeNami gift certificate!


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Emily

Fabulous tutorial Emily, never would have known it was your first. Thanks my honest opinion. You should write some more!! Wonderful cards too!

Your tutorial is fabulous, Emily!! I never even knew that the second technique existed. I love how it almost looks like crackled glass without the mess. Both your cards are stunning and I can't believe how straight you stamped all those damasks!
