Technique 3: Marbled Stains
A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2,



This week the challenge is Marbled Stains. I used this challenge to create a card for another project that I hope to tell you about later this week. I love how this technique really gives an aged/ marble look.
 To achieve the Liberty color I was looking for I used Picket Fence, Pine Needles, and Bundled Sage Distress Stains.

I couldn't be happier with the results.
