Playing with Distress Stains and Lindy’s Magicals

While Stephanie was here, I got out my Tim Holtz Distress spray stains for us to play with a bit. Since she is into all the paper crafting/card making, she is familiar with products that I’m just dabbling in. ;)

I got the three little bottles together in one package a couple of years ago when I was a part of Eni Oken’s facebook group. She’d mentioned them and I found a good deal on some (40% off too). The colors looked like a red, a blue (my favorite shade of blue), and a green. Unfortunately when I used them the first time, although they were lovely colors, they were not what I was wanting. So for Christmas one year I got the bigger bottles of stain, hoping to get the shades I wanted.

You can see my first uses with the stains here (and distress markers here and here). For reference, here is a scan from that first use.

The smaller green is more of a minty green and the pink is coral, as is its name. I was very happy with the candy apple red and mowed lawn colors I got for Christmas last year. :)

Here’s a picture of the one I did with Stephanie.

They are brighter. :) I like it. I do have to be careful about overlapping colors. I just used plain cardstock for the paper. I’ll use a black unibal pen when I tangle on it. Oh and I will cut this down into smaller pieces before tangling. :)

I also got some Lindy’s Magicals that we played with too.

I’m told you only need a few grains of the powder for it to work its magic. So we tried several things.

I love the sparkle! I also like the fireworks-like burst of color that you can see in some of the colors.I tried different amounts of the powders. I’m interested to see how this looks after I tangle over it. Next time I’ll tangle first and then use magicals afterwards.

I’m really pleased with my supplies. :) I’m looking forward to using them more and earning just how to use them efficiently.

I do have to say that the colors are much more vibrant in person though.

I hope this encourages you to try your hand at some new art supplies. :)

Until next time, God bless,
