I love them! You can get some beautiful colors with them, and with the dobber top they are really easy to use, I have only tried Vintage Photo, but I now have plans to expand my stash of them!

I have 2, haven't had much time to play with them yet. I got Broken China and Spun Sugar.

I want to try them myself but they're a little further down on my list of what I want. I have to budget very carefully. Right now I'm trying to use up my stash of stuff.

I have Spun Sugar and really like it so far! Haven't done much other than play with it though

What have you used them for? I really want them just because they are a Tim Holtz product, but that isn't really a good reason. : ) So somebody give me a good reason! lol

They are like a color wash. You can use them like an acrylic dauber on paper, canvas, wood, chipboard...etc....

I have Vintage Photo and I love it for aging my projects. But I have used different brands of ink to distress and ink up my projects too!

I have many colors of these stains!! They are superfantabulous!! I've experimented with them and they are devine! I LOVE the fact of changing the ribbon color!!! I have 15 colors... can't wait to complete the collection!!

Can anyone upload some pictures on what you do with Distress Stains? I have a few and haven't quite figured them out yet.

Tegan-Nicole, if you click on the links to the stains above, it will take you to the product page. Scroll down and it will show you layouts and projects using the stain. There is also a video showing how to use them.
