Bobbi Smith shares a Distress Happy Easter card tutorial featuring Distress Glaze and Crackle Texture Paste!

Instructions

Hi everyone, Bobbi here! I’m so happy to be with you on the Ranger Projects Page today. I’m sharing this fun Springtime Easter Card with a tutorial! Hope you’ll join me.

Springtime Easter Card Step 1

Step 1: Lay the Tim Holtz Mini Thatched Layering Stencil over the smooth side of a 4.25" x 5.5" sheet of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Using a Palette Knife, spread a thin layer of Distress Texture Crackle Paste over the surface of the stencil. Carefully lift the stencil and repeat pattern on cardstock, leaving a little white space. Then carefully lift stencil from Watercolor Cardstock. Submerge stencil and palette knife in a small dish of water, so the paste doesn’t dry on them.

Step 2: Place texturized panel on a scrap piece of paper. Working quickly while texture paste is still wet, sprinkle Distress Embossing Glaze in Antique Linen sporadically on portions of texture paste. Shake off excess and return to jar. Repeat process with Distress Embossing Vintage Photo Glaze on remainder of wet texture paste. Shake off excess and return to jar. This is going to give you a two-toned effect on the textured thatched weave. Let air dry.

Step 3: Once texture paste is completely dry, melt Distress Embossing Glaze with Heat Tool. It will look something like this. I just love that crackle effect.

 Step 4: Spritz the texturized sheet of Distress Watercolor Cardstock with a little water using a Distress Sprayer. Then spritz Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain onto wet Distress Watercolor Cardstock, leaving a little white space in the upper right side. Then dry with a Heat Tool. Repeat process on smooth side of 1/2’ x 3’ strip of Distress Watercolor Cardstock (for stamped greeting) and a 6’ strip of Idea-ology Mummy Cloth.
