Hi there, crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I am thrilled to be back on the Ranger website, today sharing a project with you using the newest color of Distress, Villainous Potion.
I love this new shade of purple, and I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into a holiday make, since that is what I have been working on these past few weeks. Today I will walk you through a fun holiday card that I created using this color using the Sizzix Santa’s Wish dies.
Step 1: To begin, cut all pieces of the Santa’s Wish die out of Distress Watercolor Cardstock except for the eyebrows (black) and the glasses (gold metallic paper). We are going to color the white pieces with Distress Oxide.
Step 2: Color your cut pieces using Distress Oxide Inks and a Foam Blending Tool. Here are the colors Tattered Rose (face), Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood (beard parts), Kitsch Flamingo (cheeks and nose), Villainous Potion (hat, holly berries) and Rustic Wilderness (holly leaves).
Step 3: Arrange all your colored pieces together except for the berries and holly leaves.
Step 4: For the berries and holly leaves, emboss them in Villainous Potion and Rustic Wilderness Distress Embossing Glazes.
Step 5: Adhere all the colored pieces down, the face, beard, eyebrows, glasses, nose and cheeks, hat and holly using Distress Matte Medium. Tweezers come in handy for doing this!
Step 6: Stamp the plaid stamp from the Plaid and Nordic set onto a panel of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. My final panel was 4 x 6.
Step 7: Create a watercolor plaid background using Distress Inks in Villainous Potion, Picked Raspberry, and Rustic Wilderness. Take the inks and press ink onto your glass mat (or palette), spray with a Distress Sprayer and pick up with a paintbrush.
Step 8: Paint each color and let dry before painting the next. I started with the Villainous Potion, then added Rustic Wilderness, then Picked Raspberry.
Step 9: Fill in the thin lines of the plaid by adding in some Dried Marigold Distress Ink.
Step 10: Dry the panel fully and ink the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
Step 11: To finish the card, add the Santa to the plaid panel using foam adhesive, add the plaid panel to a piece of green metallic cardstock and add that panel and adhere to a piece of Black Kraft Stock, then to a notecard. Finished card is 4 ½ x 6 ½, metallic mat is 4 1/8 x 6 1/8 and plaid is 4 x 6).
I hope you enjoyed this non-traditional Santa! Once you get all your pieces prepared, he is super easy to assemble, and the plaid is really fun to paint.
