Wrinkle Free Distress

I have been enjoying the 'Creative Chemistry 101' classes by Tim Holtz.  He has shared many techniques, some of which I know about, some I didn't.

For example, wrinkle free distress .... love this technique and effect it gives.

The technique is really easy.  Just smoosh your distress inks over your Ranger craft sheet, don't mix them up, leave gaps between them.  And then use your card to blot up the colour until you've covered it.  Dry with heat gun and then blot up some more colour in any spaces left, or layer colours.  Just make sure you apply heat gun between the layers to avoid a muddy effect.  After, I stamped, using Archival black ink, some Tim Holtz clear stamps 'Playful Journey'.

We are having an amazing warm March here in the United Kingdom, I hope it lasts all the way through to next Winter :)!

Thanks for stopping by ....
