So here it is just under the wire. I followed Tim's instructions here timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-april/.
He's right, the effect is amazing. I love distress paint. Dabbing ig on the metal bits with your finger works great. I smeared a bit of black on the edges to give a bit of definition. I didn't have the same stamp so i substituted the butterfly from the SA spring sprung set. I used some leftover packaging for the overlay using Stazon. The stamp along the side is from one of the TH sets at Michael's.
Just when I think that ranger/Tim Holtz can't possibly come out with another product that I will need to have..... distress paint is truly unique and the results are really lovely.
