I hope you are having a great day..
I’m back today with a short tutorial for a card that I created for the Stampers Anonymous Facebook Live that Tim Holtz hosted a couple weeks ago. It’s a fun technique using the new Distress Glazes and Distress Crackle Texture Paste. I made the background with the glazes first and then added some stamped images from the new Field Notes Stamp Set (CMS396). The Glazes are transparent so when they are melted with a heat tool, they blend together creating “craze glaze”.
So, let’s get started!
Using the new Bouquet Layering Stencil (THS143), Distress Texture Paste Crackle and a palette knife, apply the texture paste through the stencil onto a piece of Distress Watercolor Paper.
Pinch little bits of a variety of colors of the Distress Glazes (Tattered Rose, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint) over top of the wet texture paste.
Tap the bottom of the paper to move the embossing powders to cover the paste and set aside to dry and crackle.
Once the crackle paste is dry, emboss the glazed areas with a heat tool and spritz the paper with a combination of water, Frayed Burlap Distress Spray and Oxide Spray. Then dry with a heat tool.
Once the background was dry, I began adding images using a variety of stamps from the Field Notes CMS396 and Entomology CMS328 Stamp Sets.
I spritzed the background with Tattered Rose Distress Spray ad a few drips of Bundled Sage Distress Spray.
I messy stitched around the outside of the background with cream thread with my sewing machine.
I spritzed a Sizzix scribbly butterfly with Tarnished Brass Distress Mica Spray.
A small banner was created by stamping a phrase from the Tiny Text Stamp Set (CMS394) and attached to a label with an idea-ology tiny clip.
I added a small piece of vintage torn lace and a button to attach the butterfly to the card.
With that, my card was complete.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Beautiful card and color.
Yet another fabulous project!
I always love how you incorporate vintage details into your makes. I just received a bunch of vintage buttons I won on eBay. Now I just need to get my hands on some lace. The Distress Glazes look amazing….and I love “craze glaze”….looks as good as “yummy crackly goodness”…LOL…But Tim takes the prize for his sayings in his demos…
