A few weeks ago I won some of the NEW Distress Stains from Ranger / Tim Holtz on Tim Holtz's blog (random drawing). I was excited as it was some new product...but I was curious b/c I kept thinking will I use this? What would I use it for?
Well this weekend answered those questions! I finally got to scrapbook and I used my Distress Stains (I got 5 colors by the way - Dusty Concord, Faded Jean, Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar and Vintage Photo). These things are AWESOME! I used them in a few different ways.
1. Inking edges! This works amazingly to ink edges of pages! It was so simple and easy. I couldn't believe it!
2. Embossing & backgrounds. I embossed a doily image from the new My Mind's Eye Stamps - with clear embossing powder. After it cooled down a little (and prior to cutting out the image) - I used the Peeled Paint Distress stain to cover the background! AMAZING and easy. It went on so simple and dries so quickly!!
I also tested it on a Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology piece of scrap paper (embossed piece). I used the Faded Jean and it was so rich & beautiful and the embossing image really popped! I put it in my tag stash to use later!
So go find this amazing Distress Stain! You won't regret buying a few containers (or all). I love this stuff and will need to buy more colors soon! Broken Chine, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood & Wild Honey are on my MUST have list right now! Can't wait till they come out with more colors (like Mustard Seed - my fav!)
