Distress Stains...



So loads have been asking me, 'S0 , really - do I need these?' All I am gonna say...'do you really need me to answer that?'


So I have been scouring the net (in my spare time) for information for you all as to why you really need these in your stash. There is some pretty good stuff out there...here goes!

Distress Stains from Ranger Ink are a fluid water-based dye for papers and other porous surfaces. Use these for quick and easy ink coverage for backgrounds and larger areas. Apply layers of stain to achieve more saturated color. The brushed nylon dabber top has a built-in spring valve. This allows for controlling the release of Distress Stains from the bottle. By pressing the dabber top down onto surface, the valve opens and fluid releases. Lift dabber away from surface to stop fluid flow. Spread Distress Stains by swiping the dabber top lightly as a brush across the surface. Combine Distress Stains with Distress Stickles, Distress Inks, Distress Crackle Paints and Distress Embossing Powders to create unique projects that reflect a crafter’s style.

Currently there are ONLY 12, yes TWELVE colors available - but I pretty sure we will see more! The newly released stains are the same as colors that are in his 'family' now - spun sugar, fired brick, wild honey, peeled paint, forest moss, weathered wood, broken china, faded jeans, dusty concord, antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain.

Here is a great video explaining it perfectly by the King himself (be sure to listen closely as he shares a few hints on what is coming next)! Or you can head over to his blog where he give a detailed description and more info on them.

I did come across a lady after my own heart though...read this while on my search...what I don't do for you all!

Hope this little tickle helps you make that decision a little bit easier!
