Scribble stain technique

Standard

post In the February edition of Craft Stamper magazine there is an article about Tim Holtz’s ‘scribble   stain’ technique which I decided to try out. You start off in the same way as the wrinkle free distress technique but, after dabbing the ink pads onto a craft sheet, you scribble tiny amounts of Distress re-inkers over before spritzing with water.  I used Wild Honey and Faded Jeans ink pads, and Aged Mahogany re-inker. However, on my first effort I used far too much re-inker and the Aged Mahogany completely took over!! My second attempt was much more successful as I used only very tiny amounts of the re-inker. Rather than waste the first piece, I decided to use it as a background and I have stamped the latest Craft Stamper  freebie over using Picket Fence Distress Stain. I stamped the image again on the second sheet in black and used three images cut out on the front of the card.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

  2. Thank you for your comment Randal. I simply selected one of the standard free WordPress backgrounds when I signed up, and this was one I particularly liked. You can customise most of them to certain extent as well.
