simply saturday…simply stained

Sometimes all you need is a simply beautiful stamp. Isn’t this lace circle absolutely stunning?

I’ve used the simplest of techniques with it. Some dabs of Distress Stains on it and then stamp adds a beautiful watercolor look and subtle blending of colors.

Quick Tip: Have your heat gun ready when stamping with Distress Stains. Drying the stain quickly after stamping will cut down on the bleeding of the stain. I do like a little bleeding though. It makes it look hand watercolored.










Notes: the bird embellishment is Chic Resin Small Sparrows by Prima Marketing
