Distress Stains and me

SI hardly ever use my Distress Stains. This morning I decided to get them out and give a go. I put one color on my mat and swiped my glossy cardstock through it. Dried it real good and then a second color and second layer. Same does with drying. Time for a third Layer of color. When all was dry I spritzed with water..Then over the background I stamped Tim's Papillion stamp with Vintage Photo Distress INk..I used my Martha Stewart Punch for the bottom.. I stamped my ATC Collage using this special ATC Paper from LaBlanche Studio. Added that after distressing with some Black Soot. I then created the butterfly out of Acetate and painted it with Alcohol Inks.

Added some bling and a button and Voila one tag for a Challenge over at OWSE..

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp.. I have never entered anything of mine there before. Their challenge is to make a tag. Fits huh? LOL
