Destination Inspiration - Using Distress Stains

Hello everyone, this is just a quick post with a sneak peek of a tutorial I am sharing over at A Vintage Journey today on using Distress Stains to create tag bases.



Our current challenge HERE, as many of you know, is hosted by the very talented Jenny (Buttons) who has chosen 'Just Stain It' as her challenge.  Distress Stains are really versatile and fun to use and the Creative Guides have used the stains in lots of creative ways.

If you are new to Distress Stains or have some stashed away that you never use, I hope you will feel inspired to get them out, use them and even join in our current Tim inspired challenge!

I really hope you will pop over to A Vintage Journey for a closer look.  Hugs, Anne xx

  7. Hi Anne! Your tag is sooo pretty! The background is subtle yet effective with the lovely background die cut on top and then you get the gorgeous dyed ribbon! I really love those little word frames/ plaques.. They add a right amount of glamour!
    I don't have any stains so can't play but seeing your tag I'm feeling inspired! :)
    Thank you and have a great day!

  21. Hi Anne,
    Hope you are doing well.
    I am back to Blog Land! Yay
    I had problems with Google that I couldn't post nor upload anything to my blog for the longest time (7 months) :(
    Then I had surgery in June and now I am slowly getting back to my normal routine.
    I have really missed seeing all your lovely creations! Love them all and your tag is lovely! If you get a chance please visit my blog so you can see the Geisha tags I created and please leave a comment. :)
    Hugs and hope you visit me soon
