Brayered Distress Stains

Day Three, and we’re looking at totally different ways to distress.

The background was made by brayering Distress Stains.

Here it is when it’s just been brayered.


And right you can see after it’s been spritzed with water.

After it was dried with a heat tool, I stamped using Jet Black Archival ink. (The main stamp is from Graphic 45.)

  1. Oh, well this is really a nice look! I love that spritzed look, and use it often.
    I am getting out my brayer, and going for it. LOL
    Distress Stains, right? I bought a bunch of those half-priced, and didn’t even think about the Distress Paints, so I will definitely need to get some of those, I have already seen your card examples, I am working backwards from your recent card! Does that make sense?Oh well, it’s just how I do it. LOL
    I like your stamps, also. It’s a great look! AND, one I need to try. Thanks for sharing, and inspiring me to get busy! Busy playing, that is………LOL

  2. Anna, I don’t like the pre-stamped look much at all. Which has been the same for most of the techniques.

    But once it’s been stamped, it totally changes the look!

    I have lots of Distress Stains and will likely end up getting more. I have three Distress Paints with three more on the way. For some weird reason, they are very hard to get here in Australia.

    With both the stains and the paints, I suggest you have at least one metalic colour. Having one of those can totally change the look.

    Thanks for stopping by, Anna. I look forward to seeing all your samples on STV!
