Fall Tag Tutorial - Using New Distress paints


Yesterday I got my shipment of the new Distress Paint colors from Marco Paper. There are six yummy colors in total. I decided to try all of them on a tag. At first I was not sure how they would look all together but in the end they definitely spoke to me.

Supply List:
Tim Holtz Distress Paints; Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Gathered Twig, Pumice Stone, Dusty Concord, Crushed Olive,
Studio 490 Stamps; Well Worn Art,
Tim Holtz Layering Stencils; Dot Fade, Honeycomb,
Tim Holtz Distress Markers; Mowed Lawn, Picket Fence,
Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink; Potting Soil,
VersaColor Ink Cube; Pinecone,
Ranger Nonstick Craft Sheet
Manila Tag
Natural Jute Cord
Water Mister
Heat Embossing Gun

Directions:
Using the Honeycomb stencil lay down each color of Distress Paint. About an inch of each color. Gently dab so that the paint does not run under the stencil. Gently mist with water. Quickly remove stencil and dry with a heat gun.

Add some paint to the craft sheet and mist. Rub tag in misted colors.

Dry with heat gun. Place Dot Fade stencil on top of tag and dab on the Gathered Twig Distress Paint. Add the Versacolor Pinecone ink to the edge of tag.

Stamp the flower and alphabet image from the Well Worn set onto the tag using Potting Soil Archival Ink.


When dry, color stem with Mowed Lawn Distress Marker and finish with Pickett Fence marker to add highlights.
Add Picket Fence marker to craft sheet and spray with mister.
Rub tag in white mist to add droplets to the tag.
Tie jute cord through hole in tag.  Fray cord.

Your tag is full of color and layers, very interesting to look at. I can't hardly wait for CC 102 to start. I'll look forward to seeing more from you there!
