Well back to the crafting.

Hi all, Great to be back to the crafting. What with working the full time and finishing only four weeks ago and then I went to centre parcs and then Christmas, so good to get creative again.
Just got Iain to put up a shelve to house all my stains yes the whole set from Ali and Iain for Christmas. I have been very curious about them as I have used all the other distress meduims and have missed out on these and I must say they are far my fave!!! Loving the effects and ease you can use them.

Here is a card and I have to say my very first background using the stains so here goes:

Receipe* Tim Holtz Stains: Dusty Concord, Pine needles, Chipped Sapphire and edges Antique Linen.
*Tim Holtz Birdsong- centre stamp
*Prima stamp set- all the other stamped images
*Papers- Kaisercraft Vintage timeless and 13th Hour
*Prima flowers
*Tim Holtz distress pad black soot using a stipple brush around the edges
*Gold pen for highlighting the image on the stamp

All the above items can be found on our website, please have a look click me
For the stained background, I added the stains to the heat mat and then pulled the cardstock across the card and thn spritsed and dried. I had so much fun and I am so looking forward to playing some more.

I hope you all enjoy and I will be so making some more cards soon.
Love and Bugs xxx
