Distress Stain cards

A few weeks ago Jennifer McGuire shared a technique over at the classroom blog using Distress Stains, Perfect Pearl Mists, Watercolor paper, and Stamping! I tried it and was instantly hooked. I posted a card for the last week of Summer Card Camp using this techinque (you can see that here). When I was first playing around with this technique I had to try as many stamps and colors out as I could...and as a result, I made a bunch of cards!!

I used plain white Prima flowers and colored them with the distress stains! I don't think I will ever get another package of colored flowers again because I love the customized look of these!! And they match perfectly to the stamped image!! What could be better than that??

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. I love the stamped image. Those distress stains are sooooooooo good! A quick question for you? What stamp did you use on the top card?


  2. Hi Chipper-the stamp is the Flower Dot pattern From the Out of Print collection (Hero Arts for Basic Grey)'s my new favorite stamp!!!

  3. Thanks Deb :-) Been a hectic past week, so only popping back now!
