Summer of Creative Chemistry week 2

Hi everyone. I've joined in with week two of Tim Holtz Summer of Creative Chemistry at Online Card Classes and made a tag using several of the techniques for the challenge this week. The theme was distress stain and stamps.

I made distress sprays with re-inkers as layer one on the background followed by distress stain around the edges with water spritzing. Stage two was stamping with Archival followed by stamping with white distress stain. For the focal stamped image I made a custom ink pad and stamped the image with that, I really like this technique as it gives such a different look to a stamp. I've outlined the main part of the image with black pen.

The main image is stamped onto Ranger speciality stamping card and I splashed some distress stain around the edges, the card creates a nice watercolour finish with the stain.

I'm back on Friday, see you then :-)
