Stain texture card

Hi crafters. I watched the recent Tim Holtz demo on sprays. At one point he stamps with stains, which seemed like a great thing to try. I have stains mainly in daubers so I just dabbed them on a plastic mat and stamped into that. Occasionally I sprayed with water but most is just stain. I started with the Impression Obsession Canvas stamp and various brown stains onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I then used a grunge stamp with aged mahogany, ground espresso and black soot. I then stamped 49 and Market Pascale’s equations in ground espresso distress ink. The Carabelle Des Ronds was stamped in Forrest moss stain. Katzelkraft Cercle grunge was stamped with brown stains. When it was dry I stitched around the edge in olive thread and copper embossed the sentiment from the CAS-ual Fridays Bravo stamp set.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Masculine.

Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: It’s a man thing.

Happy crafting,
