Distressed Exotics

I haven't played the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast for a while.  Our inspiration comes from Bella Soleil.  I was drawn to some beautiful  Wall Panels .

Each of my panels started out as a heavy weight white card stock square.  First they were inked in Encore Gold Metallic and clear embossed.  Next came different colors of Distress Stains, followed by splotches of water.  For a little bling the rust colored panels were inked with Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain and the blue colored panels inked with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.  Then each square was distressed and inked around the edges and matted on dark brown card stock.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  unknown Bazzill, Gina K. heavyweight white card stock and SU! Early Espresso
Ink:  Encore Gold Metallic and Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Stamps:  SU!  Stitched Exotics
All the other stuff:  clear embossing powder, heat gun, water, ATG, Distress Stains in Brushed Corduroy, Rusty Hinge and Faded Jeans, Metallic Distress Stains in Antiqued Bronze and Brushed Pewter

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
