Instructions

Hi there, crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am thrilled to be sharing another tutorial with you here on the Ranger Ink Projects page. I have been playing with my Distress Sprays more and more recently and have been making tons of backgrounds in summery colors.  

Today, I have combined one of those backgrounds with the Tim Holtz Cocktails Blueprints to make a fun margarita card that is perfect to get ready for summer weather.  

 

Distress Spray Stain Margarita Card Step 1

Step 1: Gather your supplies. I used Distress Spray Stains in Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, and Squeezed Lemonade along with Distress Archival Ink in Black Soot and Crushed Olive to ink up the Cocktails Blueprints and Tiny Text stamps.
