Have you tried Ranger's Distress Oxide Sprays yet? They come in soooooo many beautiful colors and pair extremely well with stencils; especially the beautiful stencils Michelle Ward designed exclusively for The Ink Pad!
For this card I used Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Sprays. My stencil choices were Hex Pattern, Downtown NYC Map, Hash Pattern and Manhole Covers II. I sprayed each color through a different stencil onto Recycled Kraft Tags (#2 size) then, when they were completely dry (which was impressively FAST!) I outlined the patterns with a super-fine Pigma Micron pen. I mounted all the tags on a nice big card and added some Hero Arts Tulip Frame Cuts and a sentiment from my Idea-Ology Clippings Sticker Book. Et voila!
We have ten more gorgeous colors of Distress Oxide Spray and lots more Michelle Ward Stencils, too. You should check out The Ink Pad Online and add a little color to your day!
