Distress Stains and Sticky Back Canvas

I just signed up for May Flaums new class, "the Curios Scrapbookers Field Guide", over at BPC. Just two days in I´m already loving it :-) It is still not to late to sign up, so come join me for 12 weeks of brilliant fun!

 We were talikng about Distress Stains over at the class forum and I wrote about my Distress Stains and Sticky Back Canvas backgrounds, and promised to post some photos on my blog, so here they come!

This is the first one I made, and I´ve posted a really bad photo of it before. I was inspired by a YouTube video that I can´t find.

I started out stamping with the Distress Stains using Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge stamp set, Music Background from Hero Arts and Old French Writing from Hero Arts. I then stamped using Matt Multimedium (Claudine Hellmuth) on a Donna Downey foam stamp (Prima).

When all this was dry I used a variety of red and pink Distress Stains to color all of the canvas, spraying with water to make the colors blend better.
This is my second background. I actually won a contest with it! I used golden Shimmer Spritz on this one, so it has a lovely sheen to it.

I also used my Old French Writing stamp on the wood "paper" from Creative Imaginations and cut out letters using the Chip Block die from Tim Holtz and Sizzix.


This is my latest creation. I´ve developed it a tiny bit more, and stamped on top of the "finished" background using StazOn in black and Opaque White

The border surrounding the background is stamped using black StazOn and a border from the Romantique Stamp set from Prima.

The faint circles you can see in this photo is stamped using the Opaque White StazOn. I love how it came out!
