DO WHAT YOU LOVE

Hi everyone,
This weekend I was so busy testing the Distress Embossing Glaze. Tim and Tracy inspired me to make this card. It's an amazing technique using the new Distress Glazes and Distress Crackle Texture Paste. Hope you like it.



I used the new Bouquet Layering Stencil, Distress Texture Paste Crackle and a palette knife, applied the texture paste through the stencil onto cardstock. I pinched little bits of a variety of colors of the Distress Glazes over top of the wet texture paste. Tim told everyone in the video "tap the bottom of the paper to move the embossing powders to cover the paste", so I did that and then set aside to dry and crackle. When the crackle paste was dry, I embossed the glazed areas with a heat tool.


I spritzed the paper with water, Pumice Stone, Walnut Stain Distress Spray, and Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose Oxide Spray. Then dry with a heat tool. When the background was dry, I began adding images using a variety of stamps from the Flower Shop and The Professor 2 Stamp Sets.


The Sentiment was created by stamping a phrase from the Tiny Text Stamp Set. I added lace, a label on the bottom and attached the butterflies to the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,




Ann

DREAM BIG

Hi everyone,
I just got my new stashes. So exciting!!  I want to test something today, so...enjoy!


I spritzed a piece of Watercolor paper with Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Spray, spritzed it with a little bit of water to activate the oxide and dried it with my heat tool. I stamped the text and embossing with Walnut Stain and  Hickory Smoke Embossing Glazes. Maybe the background is darker, so I did not notice any difference in color after hot embossing. Then I spritzed it with a little bit of Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Spray. Oh, I really love the result of it.


I swiped the Pumice Stone and Antique Linen Distress inks across the Glass Mat surface, misted the inks with water until small beads form. Laid the paper into the watered ink to pick up color. Used heat embossing tool to dry the paper. Then I stamped the professor's images and applied eyeglass lenses with VersaMarker Pen, then added Fossilized Amber Embossing Glaze on it. After hot embossing, a slight yellow glaze on the lenses. 



Here are my tests of Distress Glaze on different media. So fun!!


Hope you like it!!


Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day!
