It also occurred to me that you don't need to be limited to using ink mists over them either; as Distress Stains/Metallic Distress Stains are water-based they will work just as well. After a bit of
The current Frilly and Funkie Challenge - 'William Morris Style' was in my mind with this one. The lacy background used a mix of red, green and brown wax crayons over the raised areas followed by Tarnished Brass Metallic Distress Stain over the top. Once dry you can strengthen the colours by reapplying the wax crayon over the Stain.
I added a digital image postcard, some stamped ivy leaves and a butterfly made with metal flakes to keep it relatively simple and uncluttered (well for me anyway!)
So I hope that has given you a few more ideas for using your Distress Metallic Stains. Don't forget to check out the extra discounted price for these at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and whilst you are there see what else is on offer. I've listed the items used in my pieces below too. And enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Jenny xx
