I was thinking, "what haven't I tried yet?"
I finally decided to test how Distress Paint would work as a resist. I squeezed Distress Paint - Black Soot onto the Craft Sheet and grabbed a replacement foam pad for the blending tool. I know Ranger makes Cut and Dry foam but for the life of me I can't figure out where it is, so this little pad is going to do the trick for now.
I chose a Crafters Workshop stencil - Mini Harlequin (6 x 6") for my background and pounced the black soot Distress paint over the entire tag. You do have to move the stencil once for a #10 tag but it was quite easy to get the pattern lined up again.
Alright back to the tag...Lets see how Distress Stains work with Distress Paint. Remember once the Distress Paint is dry, it does not react with water so this should work just fine. I used three colors of Distress Stain: Tattered Rose, Tumbled glass, and Peeled Paint...but in very small doses. Each stain was mixed with water on the Craft Sheet before swiping the tag through the color. Each color was swiped multiple times to get the stain in just the right area and dried with the Heat it tool between swipes.
Here we go...first up Tattered Rose as the base color.
converstion heart from the Valentine Blueprint set onto watercolor paper and cut it out.
Stickers go on the top right.
I say that because I dried the first flower (not pictured) with the Heat it tool, but in the end I mucked it up as I kept touching it to see if it was dry. What a dork.
Anyway, paint it, walk away, do a load of laundry and come back. They will be nice and dry and you won't have your fingerprint in the paint.
Looks like a little over easy egg!
I used foam dots under flowers and leaves.
Here is the finished tag. Seriously couldn't be happier with how it came out. Really love that paint on metal...totally doing that again. Love that you can mix the paints and stains to get different effects. The subtle stain color really plays off the black harlequin pattern.
This looks like beginnings of a good journal cover to me.
The prize package has grown...Crinkle Ribbon and a favorite Crafter's Workshop stencil. It is going to be someone's Lucky Day! I have decided I will let the comments go till midnight tonight and will post the winner on Sunday Morning.
Good Luck Everyone and thanks for coming on this Distress Paint ride!
