Distressing Tools Class

Have you ever wondered how to use all the tools in the Distressing Toolbox displayed on page 102 of the current catalog? You knew you wanted that darling little Toolbox but you were unsure how to use all the tools?

I decided that I would do a class for my customers that not only explained how to use these tools but they would carry away little techniques books showing the tools, instructions on how to use the tools, and any techniques associated with the tools. Yes, we will be creating a Stamping and Scrapbooking Technique Book as a reference.

Here are the pages (below) with the sample work we did in the class. You can download the document in .pdf or Microsoft Publish document here:

The page below will have an index tab on it.

We first took True Teal (my favorite of all CTMH colors (retired) and crinkled it, flattened it and then used the sanding block. Then we added the Desert Sand with sanding diagonally. Looks so cool in real life (and these colors are amazing together).

On Distressing paint, I've used the Ceramcoat with Petal re-inker on the smaller flower for a flat color and I've used Petal re-inker with Create-A-Color for a pearlized look on the larger flower. The "believe" is stamped with the Ceramcoat on black CS

The black texture tool was used on this as the background, sponged the chipboards with the sponge tool and stamped the bottom chipboard flower with SpotOn background set.

The background below is the sea sponge tool using the Cremacoat paint on Outdoor Denim CS.
