Video: Rockin' the Vintage Look

Today I show how to use the rock n' roll technique with the script from my Stately Flowers 9 set along with some simple sponging to create a beautiful vintage patina on your mats.  I also show how to color the peony from the same stamp set with Spectrum Noir markers.  Please enjoy!
