Brilliance Distress Stain Resist

Did you know that Brilliance ink from Tsukineko actually resists Distress Stains once they have dried?  Well it does and I made a card for you today demonstrating it!
The first thing I did was to stamp the flourish image repeatedly over the entire piece of cardstock (Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper).  Since Brilliance ink is a pigment ink it takes quite a while to dry so to speed drying I zapped it with my heat tool.
Next I squeezed quite a bit of Distress Stain (Tumbled Glass) over the cardstock.  As you can see I used quite a bit...I wanted it to be able to pool in various areas creating depth and faux dimension after it dried.  

Here's what it looked like after it was dry...

I then mounted it to my card base

Stamped a few snowflakes again using Tumbled Glass.
I wanted them to show up just a bit but not over power the Brilliance flourish.

I then added a bit of stickles to each snowflake.

I finished it off with this royal looking little owl and sentiment from Fiskars "Winter" set of stamps.

I wish you could see the shimmer from the brilliance ink and depth of the Distress Stain paired with the sparkle of the stickles. It really makes for an amazing looking card but you'll have to trust me when I say it's much prettier in person.

Is it snowing where you live?
It is here in Indiana and from listening to the news it sounds like LOTS of folks are getting snow today.  Hope you all stay safe and warm!

Take care ~

  1. Hi Roni, love that owl. This sounds like an interesting technique. No snow in my bit of Norwayland but very cold. Take care and keep warm
