A Quick Distress Stain Card - By Kat

Hi all, Kat here,with project number 2 for the month;

I have been trying out all different techniques with the
fab Distress Stains on offer for this month only HERE

Although there isn't a lot to say about making this card, the technique I used (direct to stamp)
amazes me every time, when you lift your stamp off the image is so crisp & clear.


I placed the background stamp
face up on my desk,
dabbed the distress stains
(Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint & Broken China)
onto the stamp, then spritz it with water
I then layered my card onto the stamp,
& pressed down gently with an acrylic block
I then peeled it off & dried it immediately with a heat gun,
I matted & layered it onto the card as shown in the picture,


I then used the same colours of distress stain to
colour the flower layers, once dry I glued them together
then added a vintage button,
I attached some velvet ribbon to the card
then added the flower,
lastly I added a rub on.

and there you have it!

I'll be back on the 25th
I think I'm going to make another XL tag,
I'm really liking them at the mo,

see you then Kat x.
