Color Wash and Distress

This week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show, it's Simon Says Stamp and Show a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique! My set of Color Wash and Distress Stains arrived today lightening quick thanks to Crafts to Favor. I guess the featured technique here is Color Wash. I used Color Wash for the background with some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain around the edges. The plant is Peeled Paint Distress Embossed with some Distress Stickles for highlights. The bird is Broken China Distress Stain underneath Archival black. The sentiment done with Perfect Pearl.
Speaking of Distress Stains, I stained some tags and cut out 1/2 inch circles using a craft punch and glued them to the top of the stain containers so I could identify them easily. They fit perfectly.
