Painted Metal

Hi All!

It's Jodi here with another Bombshell tutorial. This time I'll be using the new Tim Holtz Distress Paints, Ranger Adhesive Foil Sheets, embossing folders and of course a fab Bombshell Stamp - Vintage Raceway.

Here's what you'll need: Distress Paints, Adhesive Foil Sheets, an embossing folder, a sanding tool and a handy dandy craft sheet.

First, emboss the Adhesive Foil (I used my Cuttlebug, it goes where I go).

Next, take your desired color or colors of Distress Paint and cover the embossed foil. I used Salty Ocean, a little Peeled Paint and Picket Fence. If you're impatient (like me) you can speed the drying along with a heat tool.

After the paint is dried, I lined the foil buck up in the embossing folder and using a sanding tool, I sanded off some of the color on the raised parts. I put it back in the embossing folder to get better contact with the sanding tool. (it will help keep the image raised).

Color up your image and your done! I used Vintage Raceway and colored it with Copics. I added a few little details with a silver pen to tie it together some more and stapled it as well for good measure.I thought the metal with the paint sort of reminded me of road signs and went well with the car.

I hope you give it a try! It's super easy and fun. Thanks for checking it out!

Until Next Time,
Jodi :-)
