Today I decided to play some more with my Distress Stains. I used a piece of white cardstock that I ran through a Frame Cutting and Embossing Folder and colored it with a variety of Fall colored stains. I spritzed it with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz which gave it a lovely shimmer. I cut the center out and layered it on dark brown cardstock. I used foam dots to pop this up on top of some rust cardstock punched with a Martha Stewart corner/border punch, then layered this on green and more dark brown.
For the image in the center I stamped and heat embossed using Versamark ink and gold embossing powder. I painted it with bleach but it wasn’t as light as I wanted so I decided to paint it with some Smooch. This really added some sparkle. The image is Bird On Flowering Branch from Sweet Stamps.
This was a fun card to make and I really love those stains. I have ordered a few more and can’t wait to get them. Thanks so much for stopping by.
