Distress Stain Flower

Good morning all, continuing this weeks theme using “Distress Stains”, we are having a stock control system created for the J & C Creations website this week so I cannot give you the links for the stains today as that is the page currently being worked on, but we have the full range in stock.  We have already had two fantastic tutorials using Distress Stains this week by our fabulous designers Nat G and Sue, Nat has shown how to use the colours to make a stunning colourful tag, and Sue has shown how to create Faux Leather ,do take a look the are really informative posts.

I am going to show you how I made a paper flower using the stains today:

You will need:

Distress Stains – Stormy Sky, Victorian Velvet, Walnut Stain
Distress Ink – Stormy Sky
Sizzix Dies: Tattered  Florals and Elegant Flourishes
The above are all available from J & C Creations
Pages from an old book
Metal Embellishments optional
Heat Sheet


Tear a couple of pages from an old Book, place on heat sheet and using Mini Mister completely wet the sheet, starting with Victorian Velvet wipe your stains over the page building the colour up as you go.


Dry the pages with Heat Gun, once dry cut with Tattered Florals Die, cut 2 Large Flowers and 2 matching Small Flowers.
With Mini mister dampen the cut layers and screw up into a ball, open out and layer up as below, add a Large Pearl Brad to the centre of the flower with a strong PVA Glue.


Once glue is dry again gather up all the flowers to the centre and squash.  Open up each layer of petals carefully.


using white card cut flourishes with the Elegant Flourish Die, wipe Stormy Sky Distress Stain all over the flourishes, when dry stamp them with Emboss clear ink pad, and sprinkle over Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel.


Heat set to give the swirls a beautiful enamelled look, I have also used this method to enamel the metal flower on the finished card.

Edge card blank with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and assemble as shown, using your won embellies as required.

Thanks for looking and pop back tomorrow for some more ideas using Distress Stains.
