Here’s a fun new gradient technique I discovered while using Distress Stickles and Distress Markers on the same surface area. I found that this technique works on any surface on which you would use your distress products (card stock, chipboard, wood etc.). I used this technique on the cute little wooden sunglasses I showed you in my last blog post, when I shared my Thinking Inside the Box project, and I promised you all a free video tutorial. So here we are – you’ll find the video below 🙂
The trick is to cover a darker color Distress Marker with a lighter color Distress Stickles while the marker is still wet.
The second trick is to specifically use Tim Holtz’s Distress product line, for these react with water – and with eachother. I haven’t tried out any alternatives extensively but in the few instances I used different products it did not cause a gradient effect.
So, on to the video – hopefully you’ll find this technique inspriring and fun!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
