Today’s tutorial on SCS is for the Acrylic Distress technique I learned at Ranger U. If you follow my blog, you already know how to create the background from this post. I love the look this technique creates. For my sample I used the Color Combo from the Color Challenge on SCS a couple of weeks ago.
The card base was created out of a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Dusty Durango cardstock. It was folded in half. The card front was sponged with Rusty Hinge, the edges with Walnut Stain. On the lower 2/3 I stamped a script from Mini Ornates in Walnut stain. The swirl on the lower left is from the same set.
For the background I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White with Label 8 Nestabilities and embossed it with the Fleur De Lis Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. It was painted with Shell Pink Acrylic Paint, sanded and then sponged with Walnut Stain ink. The background was then buffed with a slightly damp rag to take off the ink over the acrylic paint.
The main images is from Lizzie Ann Designs Lucky You. It was stamped in Walnut Stain ink on Neenah White cardstock, embossed with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing powder and cut out with Postage scissors. Then it was sponged with Old Paper, Vintage Photo and a hint of Walnut Stain. The entire piece was covered in Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.
The sentiment is also from the Lucky You set. It was stamped in Walnut Stain on Neenah White, sponged with Old Paper and adhered to an oval Fragment with Glossy Accents. A jump ring was adhered to the back and 1/4″ May Arts silk ribbon was tied to the top. The flowers are from Prima’s Daisy Doodles, the buttons from Stampin’ Up!’s neutral button collection, Making Memories and Basic Grey.
