- Mist the cut down paper with water and swipe Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Stains over the surface. It’s not necessary to cover the entire paper.
- Partially dry with the Heat it Tool to create layers of color, then blot off the excess fluid and dry completely.
- Fill in any uninked areas with Scattered Straw Distress Ink, using the Ink Blending Tool and add Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to the edges to distress and dry.
- Randomly stencil over the paper, using Broken China Ink on the Blending Tool and Dylusions small Letter Jumble Stencil, then dry.
- Ink the background stamp with French Ultramarine Archival Ink and randomly stamp over the paper and dry.
- Add a bit of Brushed Corduroy Stain to one well of the ink palette and use the Detail Water Brush to pick up the stain, then tap the brush on your finger to add tiny dots of stain to the background, then dry. TIP: by using the ink palette, no stain is wasted! Just close the lid and it’s ready for your next inky session. If it dries out, remember Distress Ink is activated by water.
