In this tutorial, Cheiron Brandon shows you how to colorize Distress Texture Paste Translucent with reinkers to make this bright and cheery birthday card.

Instructions

 

Hello crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I am thrilled to be back on the Ranger blog today sharing a fun colorful project with you featuring some of the new Distress Mediums. If you haven’t seen, all the mediums now come in a new packaging that makes each medium easy to identify and gives descriptions of the properties right on the label. This makes everything so easy when reaching for a medium to create.

Distress Texture Paste Birthday Card Mediums

Today I am working with two of the new mediums, Distress Texture Paste Translucent and combining it with Distress Crackle Paint Translucent to create a surprisingly clean and simple card. If you watched Tim’s YouTube live, he showed different ways to color this paste and also how it looks through a stencil. I loved the shiny gloss look of it and thought it would be perfect for a card I needed to make for a very special lady who is celebrating a birthday this month!

 



Distress Texture Paste Birthday Card Supplies

To begin, I gathered up some supplies including my Distress Texture Paste Translucent, a palette knives, Distress Ink Reinkers in Kitsch Flamingo, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet and the Stars stencil.

 

 

Distress Texture Paste Birthday Card Step 1

Step 1:
On a craft sheet put a six small amounts of Distress Texture Paste Translucent and add a drop (you can always add more) or Distress Ink Reinker in each color that you want to use. We are using a dye ink to color our paste to keep it translucent.

Step 2: Use a palette knife to blend your color into the paste, wiping the knife clean in between colors.

Step 3: Place your Stars stencil over the panel of White Distress Heavystock and apply the paste. I always start by applying the yellow in the center and working my way up and then down, cleaning the knife before applying each color. When I am blending between colors, I move my palette across the colors horizontally to keep the colors true in each area.
