Using Distress Paints on my Gel Press plate® still remains one of my most fun techniques as of today. I had those distress paints sitting around since he first came out with them in 2013 ( some aren't even opened ) because, really, they didn't do anything for me, and I was first in line to buy every color he had!
... and now....well now I can't get enough of them.
And this is why I am afraid to throw away any art supplies and hoard them all...sigh....it just reinforces my need to keep everything because you never know when you will need it or maybe learn how to use it correctly!
To make the mask
1. Stamp or draw your lines for the address
2. Draw your image around the lines using the stamp to guide you
3. then cut it out
scan and copy the stamped image and enlarge it!
Once I make my masks I can keep them forever and store them in the package along with my stamps so they are handy.
I made this card a couple of weeks ago and you can find the video to using Distress Paints and your Gel Press® plate HERE.
Feel free to give me a "thumbs up" and subscribe all you want...lol...
I love making mail art, it's fun to create something that will spread smiles!
