For my tag I embossed a piece of gold foil cardstock and, not having black Distress Paint on hand, I improvised and rubbed on a few other colours of paint. However, I didn't really get the results I was looking for so I used some black Crackle Paint. I think I left it on a little too long so it didn't rub off as much as I was trying for, but it still has a cool effect.
For my card, I used the same gold foil cardstock and embossed with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder. I then used the black Crackle Paint, mixed with water, over the image to highlight the grooves. I sponged Distress Ink on cardstock for a background and applied a Graphic 45 ruler stamp and a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp, which I clear embossed over to give a darker image. I used Tim Holtz's Resist Paper Stash and an arrow stamp, which I embossed and cut out and popped up with foam dots and a chipboard circle I sponged with Distress Ink, stamped and clear heat embossed.
I'm entering my card over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge blog, where the challenge this week is to use a clear or rubber stamp on your project!
