Distress Technique Lesson 2

DISTRESSED INK.................

These inks are a lot of fun, they are a die ink and so much fun to play with. I love the colours in the ranger ranges. We stock these inks in our store at www.scrapncraftwitht.com.au if you would like to check them out!

We will do a few techniques using these and we also do these in a local class....

Here is the Second one we will make today!...

Step 1
Find your paper and which coloured distressed Inks you would like to use. You will need a soft sponge or Tim Holtz has a tool made from Ranger that does this perfectly. I have used a doilie for my sample.

Step 2
  • Place your work on a soft mat/craft sheet (made by Ranger)
  • Using your sponge
  • Dab into your ink
  • Start on the soft mat and work your way in onto the doily in a circular motion
  • NOTE: starting off the mat to start with will stop any blotches and heavy ink parts.
  • I have just used one colour around the edge first

Step 3
Use a contrasting colour - I used the blue ( faded jeans Distressed Ink)
Again use a clean sponge and dip your sponge into the ink
Repeat the above circular motion, starting off the paper
Completely cover the intire doily

Step 4
If you want the ink to blend more you can use your POTION #9 and it will blend it beautifully!

Wait to dry or use a heat gun if you want it to dry quickly.

Step 5
Select a STAMPS you would like as a texture... we have LOTS in our Scrap N Craft with T store

Now you have created another amazing master peice that you can build on. We would love to see you use this technique on a project and place it in our gallery!

till next time
luv tanXx
