Tuesday with Tara {take 390} irRESIST-able

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a fun resist technique with a CAS-ish feel- I hope you like it!

I’ve got two cards featuring Uncharted Mariner Distress products- the first card shows the Distress Spray Stain and the second shows Distress Oxide Ink.  I also took a photo of my backgrounds side by side so you can see how the two inks compare with each other.

For this technique, I’ve started with a glossy translucent texture paste applied through a stencil.  If you don’t have any, this texture paste is perfect!  I applied it on some pre-cut stitched rectangle panels as I planned to have a CAS-ish white on white base for my card.  Once the paste was dry, I selected some Distress mediums to use!  I also had pre stamped and cut a variety of sentiment strips from Tim Holtz’s Tiny Text stamp set– I arranged and stamped several at the same time then cut them into strips so I had a variety ready to use.

For this first card, my stencil is a fun “typo” alphabet.  I’ve misted over it with Distress Spray Stain in Uncharted Mariner.  Love those splatters!  This leafy sprig is from a die set that is a few years old, but still a favorite of mine- Wildflower Stems #1.

This card features Distress Oxide ink, also in Uncharted Mariner.  I blended it with a foam ink blending tool and splattered a bit of water over it for extra dimension.  The stencil is a fun mesh design & I love the addition of an inky bird silhouette.

As you can see in this last photo, there are slight variations in the colors & appearance of the Distress products even though they are the same color.  I love experimenting to see how different products will present & react using a similar technique!  If you’d be interested in seeing more products compared in real time, drop me a comment and we can work on having a live demo for you on Facebook!

Hope you have a beautiful Tuesday!

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 364} Crackle Fun!

Today I’m sharing two simple mini-slim cards with some fun crackle texture!  For both cards, I used the Curly Frond stencil/mask by Dina Wakley Media, together with Distress Crackle Paste & Distress Embossing Glaze.

It took a bit of trial and error to figure out how to make it all work (crackle paste dries faster than you expect!) but it was worth the mess!  Even the ones that “didn’t work” look pretty cool (I’ll be sharing another one on my Instagram later this week!)

As you can probably tell, the paste I worked with was white.   I applied the paste as thick as I could, while keeping it even, then quickly rinsed the stencil when I lifted it (next time I’ll have a tub of water ready for soaking).  I then sprinkled Distress Embossing Glaze over the design- the ‘hello’ card has Rustic Wilderness & Uncharted Mariner, the ‘thanks’ card has Salvaged Patina instead of the green, since it’s on that bright lime background!

Both were stenciled onto a die cut panel, then once the paste was completely dry I melted the powder that stuck to the crackle using my heat tool.   I’ll be sharing a closer look at both cards on Instagram today, so please check it out!

Plan to check back with us on Thursday this week for our August Inspiration hop… we have some stunning projects to share with you!

Inky hugs,
