MC Aug/11 - Distress Stains - Noel

I must admit, Distress Stains were not something high on my priority list to purchase. I bought a couple a while back, swiped them over some cardstock, and said um to myself. Put them in the drawer and there they've sat... Of course the two colors I purchased weren't so great either or so I thought at the time.

Then the other day I watched the video clip Tim did showing the differences of the 3 products, stamp pad, reinker and stain. I love the look he got with the stains. So out came my 2 bottles... And the card in this post is the result. I was so impressed I went out and bought a bunch more colors, not the ones I wanted, since they seemed to be all sold out, but bought every color they did have (only 5). So will have fun playing with them in the VERY NEAR future.

Anyway you can click on card image to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.

And it uses a Quietfire Design quote stamp.
