I had a lot of fun playing with Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray and Oxide inks today. WOW! Love the spattered texture it gives...let me tell you about it...
I began with some cream colored cardstock and die cut a tea cup shape (twice) from Stamp Simply's Coffee or Tea? Steel dies. I glued the two sets of cups and handles together with Tombow Mono Multi Glue with the intent of making a sturdier cup to hold up to all of the "work" I had planned for it.
I then placed the cup and handle in a cardboard box and spritzed with the Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray. The box is recommended to keep any over spray from damaging surfaces...I have heard that it is very difficult to get off of surfaces if you allow it to dry on your regular craft mat or table.
After the Distress Resist spray dried, I inked up a Ranger Mini Ink Blending tool with Tim Holtz Oxide ink, then went to work layering greens and blue over the cup using my Ranger Craft Mat. You can see how wonderfully the resist spray worked on the tea cup below...
I also spritzed the cup with water from a Tim Holtz Distress Spray bottle. I dabbed the water drips up with a semi dry baby wipe. This added even more visual interest and mottling to my cup. I was very pleased with the results.
I die cut "Tea" with the die from the Stamp Simply steel die set three times; glued them all together to make a thicker, chip board appearance; then colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide and Distress inks to color it as well.
The cup is layered over a Spellbinder Hemstitch Oval die cut, then over Kaisercraft "Wandering Ivy" decorator paper.
A May Art's 3/8" Crochet Lace border adds a sweet touch.
