Industrial Grunge Photo Frame with Grungeboard Scraps

 Created by: Leigh Snaith-Brunton - The Sharpie Domino Queen and Design Team Member
 Description:  I've created an Industrial Grunge style photo frame with a faux scrap metal look using scraps of Grungeboard and metallic Distress Stains.  


The photo above shows the finished frame after I antiqued it with black antiquing gel and more metallic Distress Stains brushed on to add more of the metallic shine.  The photo below shows the frame with all the pieces treated with the metallic Distress Stains before I antiqued it.  Both work equally well, which look do you prefer?
