Hello there creative friends! I am happy to be back today to share a project that I created with the brand new colors of Distress Embossing Glazes. I am absolutely loving these bright colors. So happy to have Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet now in glaze form!
I created a fun tag today using all the colors of the glazes, Distress Mixed Media Heavystock Tags, Crackle Texture Paste and a stencil. There are so many uses for these tags…in your art journal, on a card, or even to tie to a gift (like a bottle of something fun). Today I am going to show you a technique that I love to do with these glazes where you add them over wet texture paste and sprinkle them on, almost like painting with the glazes.
Step 1: Gather up your supplies. You will need your Distress Embossing Glazes, a tag, some Distress Crackle Texture Paste, a palette knife, stencil and a scrap piece of paper to make it easy.
Step 2: Apply the Crackle Texture Paste through a stencil.
Step 3: Remove the stencil and soak in water until you can rinse it off to clean it later.
Step 4: Select one color of the Distress Embossing Glaze, I started with the Mowed Lawn took a tiny pinch of it and sprinkled it over all the leaves, it won’t be perfect, but that just adds to the Distress look.
Step 5: Keep adding colors until you cover all of the paste. Have fun with it, I added multiple colors to some of the flowers, keeping the warm colors and cool colors together.
Step 6: Lightly tap your fingers underneath the tag to move the powder around. Pour off the excess.
Step 7: Once you are done ‘painting’ with the glaze, let the paste dry, you will see the texture paste start to crackle.
Step 8: Once the paste is dry, heat the tag with an embossing gun to melt the paste.
Step 9: In a splat box, spray the tag with water from a Distress Sprayer, then spray your tag with Frayed Burlap Distress Stain.
Step 10: Ink the edges of the tag with Black Soot Distress Ink using a Mini Ink Blending Tool.
Step 11: Add an Idea-ology Paper Doll.
Step 12: Then add a sentiment from the Snarky Talk Sticker Book and tie a piece of ribbon through the top to finish it.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I can’t wait to add this tag to a card to send to a friend.
