Stamping with Distress Paint

In my kit from En liten butik I got Distress Paint. I've been wanting to try it out for a while but I haven't had a chance yet. I really like the propertys of the paint since it is really versitale. I tried out a couple of techniques. 

 I tried stamping with the paint, it looked really cool on dark colored cardstock. Almost like the very popular chalkboard effect. I also got some really cool Stampendous glass glitter in my kit, I love it!

I used some nice wooden letters and papers from Echo Park.  

I wasn't sure it would work but since the paint is acryli I hoped it would work as a resist and it did. I got some really cool results from stmping with the paint and then making backgrounds with distress ink. I made some more that looked cool with the light paint and some darker colored backgrounds also. I just have to try this on canvas also, I've made some cool pieces before with acrylic paint. But I think the distress Paint will give even better results since it's a bit more fluid.  

I also got some really cool embossing enamel from Stampendous. I embossed the letters with it and love the look. I think I will have to try it on something larger also.

I'm still super excited about the kit I got from En liten butik, there are still so much more to try out. Looking forward to creating some more.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
