May Flaum here, and what I realy wanted was to figure out a way to have colors stand out vibrantly yet in a distress kind of way onto my kraft tag for this week's challenge. What I found is that Distress paints are perfect for this - and I made my tag into the card you see above.
Coloring is the real fun part in a project like this, and the distress paints truly were made to do things just like this! To truly explain my process I thought a video would be the way to go:
Links to supplies used:
distress paints in chipped sapphire, salty ocean, tarnished brass, seedless preserves, and spiced marmalade
time travelers stamps
