Scratch glossy cardstock with sandpaper to get this amazing look.

- Glossy cardstock
- Blending Tool, or sponge
- Background stamp (optional) Crafty Secrets Artsy Banner used here

Step 1 (Optional)
Stamp a background on your glossy cardstock.
Sand your cardstock making vertical lines. Sand the entire piece of cardstock.
Sand your cardstock horizontally, and keep sanding until all the gloss is gone.
Sponge your cardstock with ink.
The darker the ink, the more obvious the sanded lines will be.
Step 4 (Optional)
Stamp additional images on your background.
Sand your cardstock again in both directions to lighten the sponged color and to get the Faux Linen look.
Finish your card.
Use craft or chalk inks to sponge over the sanded cardstock. It will give you a different look.
