Distress with Picket Fence

Well yesterday I received my Picket Fence distress stain - and had to play; though I didn't have time to blog them.

When I got home from work tonight I had to carry on playing!  Like it - like it a lot - and need some more colours to try!!

I have played really, rather than particularly finishing off any tags - so no embellishments, just some stamping. 

Left to right - tumbled glass with picket fence both under and over the tumbled glass; applied in a scribbling motion
Antique linen and walnut stain
Dusty confcord and fired brick.
Top - picket fence on the tag, and tumbled glass over the top, and then more picket fence and tumbled glass again left without blending.

Bottom -Wild honey  applied roughtly and picket fence again left without blending other than spritzing with water - love how the stain wicks and bleeds.
Used some new stamps (had them a couple of weeks, but haven't inked them before so it was a good excuse!)

I have also managed to damage the picket fence applicator - it's torn - I don't remember if it was when I opened it, or if I have been too rough - but, hey it still applies the stain, so no probs!

Off to play again now.
