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.
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!
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.
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.
Step 4: Remove the stencil and let the paste dry.
Step 5: Cut number dies. I cut three of each number and adhered them together with Distress Collage Medium to give them more dimension.
Step 6: Paint on a layer of Distress Crackle Paint and let it dry.
Step 7: Adhere numbers to the card panel and add an Idea-ology label sentiment.
Step 8: Add some black spatter to the card using Black Soot Distress paint and a paint brush.
Here is a closeup to see all the details of the finished card.
