Looking Old and Worn Out

Welcome to another day of that distressing feeling! We mean the kind when you make a new project then add the right touches to make it look old and worn.  Our team is using the fantastic Stampendous Cling Rubber Stamps designed by DecoArt‘s Executive Creative Consultant, Andy Skinner. We’ve got a special guest today, too! Terri Sproul is playing along with the Industrial Stamp Set, DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, and her Proxxon tools to create a visionary piece. She’s made a video so you can follow along with the process! Check it out!!
