Scrappy Angie's: Distress Stain "Fireworks"

It's the last Thursday of October and this will be the final week of the Rangers product showcase. Today I will be showing you a fun technique on using your Tim Holtz Distress Stains. 

What are distress stains? 
Distress Stains are fluid water-based dyes for papers and other porous surfaces.

• Acid free, non-toxic
• Fade-resistant dyes
• Dabber top with spring valve control
• Available in 1 fluid ounce bottles
• Available in 52 colours

Today we will be doing some splat-and-splash and creating some "fireworks".


1. Get a piece of white card stock and a Distress Stain (Here I am using Worn Lipstick). Then angle your Distress Stain bottle just about 90 degrees above your cardstock.

2. Then... SPLAT the Distress Stain onto your cardstock and see it splash! Do not worry - this will not  damage your applicator. But do remember, just a gentle splat will do. Hammering or brutal force is not needed.  Splat it randomly to create a background pattern.

3. Next, embellish it and wa-lah!! The card is ready. Simple and quick!

Now get your Distress Stains out and give it a go! :)

NEW ARRIVALS!!! Martha Stewart PORTABLE WORK STATION Tool Storage Bag in SnC

The Martha Stewart Crafts™ Portable Work Station is just amazingly wonderful if you're on the road - like me! 

I love stationery. Don't ask me why, but I feel insecure with just the bare minimum even if it's an overnight trip for work… so now, I pack my favourite Cutterbee, rotary blade, ceramic letter opener, craft tweezers and even an eyelet puncher along … for work.

Truthfully, I've never had a need for any of the above on work trips, and frankly, I will never have the need for them on any of my work trips - for Pete's sake, I work the spreadsheets for a living!

But, it makes me feel secure … and though I had thought Val was mad to gift it to me on my birthday … I've found it to be wonderful. So, rather than taking along embellishments, ribbons, scrapbook papers etc. I bring along my paperwork!!! with those feel-secured unnecessary stationery and crafting tools. 

However, now that I have been challenged to do a Travel Themed Project Life, I suspect more essential crafting tools, as well as embellishments, ribbon, scrapbook paper, a cutting mat, and a scoring board will make way into my Martha Stewart Crafts™ Portable Work Station.

So, seriously, do consider the Martha Stewart Crafts™ Portable Work Station. It's compact and makes it easy to bring your crafting essentials with you. It's a travel-friendly bag opens up to a 12in x 12in work surface; complete with flaps and pockets for securing essential crafting tools, as well as embellishments, ribbon, scrapbook paper, a cutting mat, and a scoring board (not included).

Center pocket can hold 12in x 12in paper pads.
Unique tool storage folds out to stand upright for easy access to crafting tools and writing instruments.
Two mesh pockets provide visible storage for embellishments and adhesives.
One solid pocket stores and protects photographs and cards.
Outer pocket holds essentials like keys and mobile phone.
Adjustable shoulder strap.
Durable fabric.
Approximate dimensions: 14.3" x 15.3" x 1.7" when closed.
