Yikes! It has taken me a whole week to get Day two done. Tim does not mess around when it comes to teaching us techniques. He packs a full class.
Day Two is all about Distress Paint and Sprays
I have learned so much, and have made a mess of my craft area and have stained my fingers. LOL
Distress Paint Resist Technique
I decided on this card to go for the Halloween look.
I have some older Anna Griffin stamps that had large words. This was perfect for the tag and card. I love the broken glass stsncil and it looks like a spider web.
Distress Paint Lifting Technique.
For both the tag and card I used some valentine themed items. Not your traditional LOVE type cards, but it works for me. I dyed the ribbon to match the distress colors.
Distress Stain Rub Resist Technique
This tag and card was hard. I must have had this rubon for a million years. It was almost impossible to get onto the paper. I tried heating it. rubbing it. cursing at it. I finally got it to work. So glad I did not rip the paper.
I even dyed the cord with Distress Carved Pumpkin.
Distress Luminous Mica Technique
I liked the Mica spray. This spray can be addictive.
For the card I decided to used the Hero Arts Goldfish. I also added some bubbles with Glossy Accents.
Here is a close up.
Distress Marker Spritzed Watercolor Technique
I know I bought a Distress Marker Sprintzer but I could not find it anywhere. I finally had to buy a new one. I search everywhere. Finally a local store had it. I was sure the moment I got home the other one would show up. LOL.
I fought this spritzer tooth and nail. When I finally got the hang of it, I was pretty much done. It tends to move the marker to the side, so I was not getting any spray from the marker. Once I figured it out, it finally marked my paper.
Since I just bought the Tim Holtz Summer dies, I had to make a shaker card using the palm tree and the words.
Thanks you for looking at my creations.
