Share the Love Week Featuring Distress Inks | Day 3

share-the-love-graphic-distress-inks-ranger

You are here at our third day of our Share the Love Week featuring Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger!  This is a week-long love fest when we focus on a company or product we adore and show how smitten we are by using our featured love with w&w products!

Distress Inks are a fabulous product line brought to you by Ranger and the incomparable Tim Holtz. We recommend, if you haven't already, stalking following Tim Holtz's site and Ranger's site for more information and inspiration.

This time around we want you...yes, you...to participate with us for a chance to win some awesome prizes.

Our Third day is about a very fun technique: Resist!  Grab some embossing powder or paint and your Distress Inks and lets have some fun seeing what you create to resist that ink!

Before we get to how you can participate to win, let's see what Julie, Shay and Gayatri, Heather and Vanessa of The Talent have made.

Julie

This project was totally exploratory and I had no idea what I was going to make, but I knew I wanted a tag, and I wanted to work with a resist technique.  I found a 12 inch circle stencil in my stash that has dotted circles  in various sizes and widths.  I actually couldn't find my Distress Paint for this, but I did find some liquid acrylic paint and some trusty makeup sponges and created a gradient effect that changes from aqua (bottom left), to green to pale yellow (upper right).  This was drying really fast mainly because I didn't need much paint to get this effect – gotta like that.  I did dry it with the heat tool just to be sure it was dry before I added my distress inks.

Using the ink blending tool I added inks in bright colors and also sprinkled the tag with water droplets (spritz and flick) and then dried the tag.  The water reacts and leaves droplet marks that lighten the color of the ink. I added two more stencils - one of triangles (triangles on left side) with picked raspberry ink and smaller vertical dots with seedless grapes.  The paint had no problem resisting the ink .

Using Archival ink in Jet black, I added the camera from TheWrite Stuff: Picture Perfect  in 3 different places and the word smile from Bubble Talk ink picked raspberry in 3 places, and a stack of “celebrate” in more of the seedless grapes.  Since this card is pretty colorful and busy, I added the SMILE it’s your birthday stamped with Versamark and embossed white for a little more prominence on the card.  Stickles?  Yes please!!!  More stardust stickles on the tiny purple dots at the two corners and on the row of stenciled triangles. I scattered a few sequins and added a fluffy bow to finish it off.  Color, visual texture, resist and sparkle – tag-alicious!

Shay

I took an unorthodox approach.  For my resist card I went back to kindergarten by pulling out my crayons.  Yes, crayons can be used as a resist!  The wax repels the ink.  I love how easy they are to use, the large array of colors and the smell takes me way back.

I stamped the ledger heart from The Write Stuff: Love Story in onyx black Versafine and created a pattern.  I colored in the hearts with white and a pale pink crayons.  Around the hearts I colored in with the white crayon.  I then used my handy ink blending tool by Ranger and squeezed lemonade Distress Ink and added the color over the entire panel.  Lastly I buffed the panel with a paper towel to remove any ink adhering to the crayon wax.  What I love is all the imperfections in coloring are shown when the ink seeps into the paper not covered with crayons.  The less you color with the crayon the more prominent the Distress Ink.

I added sequins and confetti from Studio Calico.  I stamped the speech bubble and sentiment from Bubble Talk in black ink and cut out.  I edged the speech bubble with a little of the squeezed lemonade with my ink blending tool.  I adhered it with dimensional foam adhesive.  I added a small strip of black cardstock under the edge and adhered it to an A2 white card base.
