PaperArtsy Infusion Colored Stains with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the blog today and Happy Sunday! It’s Shari here with a card I’ve created using a medium that is so cool and unique!!!

I’ve used Infusion Color Stains from PaperArtsy for all my color. Talk about fun! Let’s take a look at the background. It came out looking like old barn wood. Infusions are a dry powder which also have walnut stain pigment mixed in so everything comes out looking distressed and old, yet colorful.

The technique I’ve used is to apply Galzing Medium from Ranger onto watercolor paper, sprinkled on an Infusion color, then spread it out with a paintbrush. I overlapped my color while everything was wet and let the colors blend.  I love the additional specks of color that appear within each color of stain.

I experimented with more color combinations on regular card stock, letting colors mix. Once I was happy, I stamped my flowers, cut them out then assembled my card.

I’ve shot a video or how to use the Infusions with Ranger’s Glazing Medium to create the background and card. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.
