Distress Stain Backgrounds

As I was browsing I found this YouTube video, so watched it and had a play.  I didn't have any of the glittery card, so I sprayed a white piece with some gold. This is the first print using squeezed lemonade, festive berries and spun sugar.  The Stampotique word background was stamped in vintage photo, spritzed with water and blasted with the heat gun, hence the reason it's not that clear. (It's not meant to be!!)

This is a close up of the gold glitter showing through.

And this is the second print, as you can see it's a lot lighter.  This time I inked the stamp and spritzed the stamp before stamping.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
