This card was fun to make - it was my first time using Texture Paste with one of my Tim Holtz stencils. My hubby is a car guy and I'm always looking for craft supplies that I can use on his birthday cards or scrapbook pages. This Tim Holtz Treads stencil is perfect!
I started with a light gray cardstock and tinted the Ranger Texture Paste with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. I laid the stencil on a diagonal across my cardstock then filled it in with Texture Paste.
Once it was dry, I started distressing the cardstock with more Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.
I went over it a few times so I could get a lot of colour in between the tire treads.
I blended the Hickory Smoke Distress Ink all around the edges of the cardstock. Then I added a bit of Stormy Sky Distress Ink - the ink pad was really wet compared the rest that I bought (leaked in packaging), and it went on heavy so I blended it out as best as I could.
I used my CTMH Ink Blot Stamp set (retired) with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink and stamped randomly over the top and bottom.
I added some Black Rhinestones and stamped the Happy Birthday (retired) with Ranger Black Archival Ink.
Inside I stamped another sentiment and the Hot Rod is from CTMH Maximum Power stamp set (retired).
