Distress Spray Stain Peony

Hey card making friends.  Today I have a super fun project to share with you, Distress Spray Stain Peony.  I was cleaning my craft room (never ending project), and had purchased some Distress Spray Stains that needed to be put away.  I decided to have a little play time with them first.  The result was a really pretty background.  Also in that order was a lovely Peony Background stamp from Simon Says Stamps.  Combining the two, resulted in this pretty card.

Distress Spray Stain Peony

 

The sprays I used for this card were Uncharted Mariner and Old Paper.  When I got to the painting stage, I added Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Spray.

Note:  This is a 6″ x 6″ square finished card.

How to create the Distress Spray Stain Peony Card:

Start with a large piece of Canson 140 lb watercolor paper and spritz it with water until the entire surface is wet.

Next, spray with Distress Spray Stains in Uncharted Mariner and Old paper then set aside to dry, dabbing up any big puddles.

Then, use your Misti stamping tool to stamp the large Peony Background stamp with VersaMark ink.  Cover with detailed gold embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set.

Finally.  Cut the square down to 5-1/2″ square.

Painting with Distress Spray Stain:

Start by pouring a small amount of the Uncharted Mariner and Distress Oxide Spray Peeled Paint onto a couple of acrylic blocks and added a bit of water to each.

Next, use a fine tip paint brush to add color to the flowers and leaves.

Then, when dry, mount to a card base:

  • Card Base:  6 x 12″, scored and folded at 6
  • Card Front:  6 x 6″ Bazzill 301078 teal colored cardstock – or anything else that goes with your art piece.

Finally, Use a strong adhesive like tear tape to attach your art piece to the card front.

Add the Fancy Hello die cut sentiment cut from Gold Glitter card stock and the shadow cut from the same paper you used on the card front.  Add the secondary sentiment from the Reverse Birthday Wishes Sentiment Strips (retired, but I linked something similar below).  Then add a few Stay Gold Sequins.
