Hello all you amazing crafter’s out there. Shanna here with a quick fun technique.
Did you know that Distress Paints act as a resist? Some other acrylic paints do as well.
Here is the tag I created for the holidays.
The first step is to grab your supplies.
I used a makeup sponge to apply my Distress Paint with the stencil TCW 515 – Pinecones.
Here is what it looks like. The juicy the paint the more it might get under the stencil. (TIP: use a spray adhesive on your stencils that is not permanent but movable. It will help the paint not go where you don’t want it.)
Once that paint was good and dry I went in with a Distress Stain. Just splash some stain on the sheet and spritz it with a mini mister or spray bottle.
I smooshed my tag in the puddle of green, dry it a little, smoosh the tag in the puddle more until the puddle is basically gone. Dry it.
Once it is dry I sprayed water in my hand and then threw it down in a splatter way on the tag.
Once that dries embellish. I added more pinecones to go with the stencil and some ribbon and a sentiment I thought was cute.
Thank you so much for for stopping by today. Don’t forget to share with your friends,
