If you saw my card that I posted yesterday, you may have thought this was coming. I’ve had a change to play a little with the new Distress Paints, and I’m in LOVE. Eek! The video tutorial for this week features these guys in Picket Fence, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Spun Sugar. Yum!
Here’s the video for this week. Enjoy!
I talk about my favorite 12 colors in this blog post, if you’re interested in which ones to pick up first!
And here’s the finished card. I’m so in love with this fresh and bright ombre look. And the pink? How perfect is the color scheme for a baby girl card?!
Although the background tends to steal the show, the cast of supporting characters here is the cute stamping from Lawn Fawn’s Plus One and the brand new Lemon Bakers Hemp. They pull everything together into a funky but polished overall feel. And the coloring on the rattles? That’s done with Distress Paint, too. Just tap a little out onto your craft sheet and you can paint with a brush just like you would with acrylic. It was insanely easy, and there was no extra color matching required.
I hope you enjoyed this little layering tutorial. This is just the beginning of playing with these new paints, and I can’t wait to have more time to play with them! I’m keeping nice and crazy busy with school, some freelance work and my own projects, but that’s okay. I like being busy – gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. :) Be back soon for some fun with one of my favorite products of all time. (Cough*wood veneer*cough!)
