Good morning! I was so excited to receive my Tim Holtz Distress Paints in the mail yesterday! I LOVE colour as you probably are aware lol! I especially like the colour combo of pink and orange together :) So that was my starting point to begin my paint play on this tag....had no idea where I was going, I guess this is my usual too LOL! I just like to play and HOPE that it turns into something I like :)
So to start the play/process...I picked some pretty colours of Tim Holtz Distress Paints and applied them to my craft mat.
Then I dragged my tag through them a few times, drying with my heat gun slightly in between the swipes.
Then my OCD kicked in and I NEEDED to see where the paint was going :) SO I pulled out my Ranger craft scraper tool and applied more layers of the THD paint with it.
In the photo below I have added a few more layers with the paint...the orange circles are a stamp dipped in the paint and then stamped on the tag, and as you can see I used a stencil and foam applicator to apply the purple THD paint to the tag.
I have found a new favorite white embossing powder :) It is called WOW! Opaque Bright White and yes it is!! LOVE!!
The THD paint worked wonderfully to cover my metal flourishes :)
I love how the painted ribbon stiffens up a bit with the application of the THD paint...perfect for the top of this tag!
