Use the Evergreen Bough Distress Stain by Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink to add beautiful color to porous surfaces, including paper. Distress Stain is a fluid, water-based dye that covers backgrounds and large areas quickly and easily. For lighter, mottled color, mix the stain with water and mist. For more saturated color, apply layers of stain. Distress Stain comes in a 1 oz. bottle with a spring valve dabber.
