Worn paint backgrounds

 Hello! I am here with more Inkylicious samples, this time using the worn paint background. My wooden picture frame was painted with Gesso then dusted and stamped with spring distress inks. I also used silver embossing powder. I am entering this into the latest challenge at Allsorts where the theme is anything but a card.
This was dusted with peacock feathers and festive berries distress inks.
 I will let you into a little secret - this one didn't make it to Deby as I manages to spill a cup of tea on it! It was dusted with barn door, wild honey and spiced marmalade distress inks. The stamping was done in Adirondack espresso
More spring distress ink and gold sparkle wow embossing powder.
There are still more samples to come.  I am going to try and put the remaining samples into one post  very soon!
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments!

And they just keep coming....... how you managed all this, plus sleep & taking care of your Dad......Superwoman is the word that springs to mind. The various effects demonstrate how versatile the woodgrain stamp is - your second one is my favourite but closely followed by the one that ended up under the tea......... Tea Dyed??
Congratiulations upon a tremendous effort with terrific results.

All fabulous! That really is a versatile stamp. Haven't had time to play with mine yet! Pity about the spilt tea, could you have spilt a bit more and called it natural distressing?! Lovely card anyway. x

These are all stunners Sally and I think that worn paint stamp was my favourite of the whole show. It's definitely top of my wish list at the moment.
