It’s Clear to See…

It’s clear to see that I have finally used my distress stains!!!!  I had two problems with my stains.  First not knowing exactly what to do and second not having the right colors.  I was fortunate enough to win the original set of 12 stains from Simon Says Stamp, but I could just never get a combination of colors that made me happy.  I recently picked up 3 new colors that I think work well together and then used a technique that my friend Joy showed in a recent video on her blog.  You can see her video post HERE.  This card is a product of me playing with my stains and wanting to use a Lawn Fawn set that I had yet to get inky. 🙂

I clear embossed the background onto white cardstock, then used Joy’s technique of dabbing the different colored distress inks on top of the embossed image.  In my card I used Scattered Straw, Bundled Sage & Dried Marigold.  Once dry I inked the edges slightly with Pumice Stone so it would stand out against the yellow card base.  The sentiment & image are from Lawn Fawn’s Clear to See set.

Thanks for stopping by today, tomorrow I’ll be back with a video!
