Hello and welcome back!
Did anyone else spend last weekend glued to social media waiting and watching for live updates from Creativation? It was so much fun and I wasn't jealous at all. There are so many exciting products being released this spring!
One of the most exciting demos I watched was this one from Tim Holtz.....watch and be amazed.
This technique of absolutely blew my mind and I rushed to my craft room to try it out.
After a few attempts and being dazzled by the results I decided to take it one step
further with a stencil.
After using the smoosh technique to apply the Abandoned Coral & Twisted Citron Oxides to the glossy paper - I took my Tim Holtz Layering stencil (THS059 Blocks) placed it over the glossy paper and applied Distress Micro Glaze with an ink blending tool.
I then dragged my glossy card through some Vinatge Photo Distress Oxide on my craft mat. This left the Vintage Photo only on the stenciled image not covered with Distress Micro Glaze.
The last step was to go voer then entire card again with the Distress Micro Glaze to remove the chalky white finish left from the oxidation.
This is such a fantastic technique and one that I am sure to use over and over.
