Creative Chemistry Day 5

Today was all about Distress Stains and sprays and the differences in both. Only makes me want some (OK, ALL!) of the Dylusions Paint Sprays. Waiting patiently on Michelle at Posh Scraps to get her Dyan order in.

Stained Kraft Resist Technique. This tag was done using t!m's Kraft Resist paper pack. We applied Distress Stains to the paper and where the varnish is resists the stain. Flicked water on the paper to leave spots and dried. Then we used the blending tool and Distress Ink pads and applied layers of color. I used the pattern piece of paper and a couple of the stamps from the Haberdashery stamp set using Archival ink.
Stamping with Stains Technique. This one started with a wet tag and then we applied Distress Stains. Dried with the heat gun and misted water on as we dried to create a mottled effect. Then used a stamp  and instead of ink, applied Distress Stain Picket Fence to our stamp and stamped, then quickly dried it. Then stamped an image on top using Archival ink.  
Marbled Stain Technique. This one started with a puddle of Picket Fence on our Kraft sheet. Then sqiggled other colors of Distress Ink around it. Then drag the tag thru the colors for a marbled effect. As you dry the tag, re-dip it into the colors and spritz with water for a more mottled effect. Images stamped in Archival ink.
