Distress Stains, Watercolour Backgrounds classes

The current atc class that I'm teaching at Scraptivate is making backgrounds using the new Ranger Distress Stains. Only available in 12 colours presently, I'm sure the other 24 will be out at some stage in the future. My only wish is that Spun Sugar was not released in this first lot, it should've been Victorian Velvet....hopefully it'll come out soon! Not a big fan of fairy floss pink but the Victorian Velvet colour is just gorgeous!

I've been doing the backgrounds on both gloss and matte card stock and the difference is amazing! Personally love it on gloss more, but for quick and easy colour, nothing beats the Distress Stains.

"Artistic"...(gloss card - Wild Honey & Dusty Concord)

"Life is Change"... (gloss card - Forest Moss & Broken China)

"Voyeur"... (matte card - Vintage Photo & Broken China)

"Sleep"... (matte card - Fired Brick & Walnut Stain with Fired Brick splats)

The last class was Watercolour Backgrounds and I didn't get around to uploading any pics so here they are.

"Wild"... (Lyra watercolour crayons)

"Clean the guns"... (Lyra watercolour crayons)

"Diabolical"... (Twinkling H2O's)

Lastly, here's a couple from the 3rd last class - Shimmer Spray Backgrounds.

"Zombie"... (Peeled Paint Distress Re-inker & Antique Gold Perfect Pearls)

"Archway"... (Broken China Distress Re-inker & Pewter Perfect Pearls)
