Petaloo Color Me Crazy & Ranger Ink Week

May 14, 2013

All this week on the Petaloo Blog, Petaloo is show­cas­ing guest design­ers using their Col­or Me Crazy Line that have been altered with Ranger Ink prod­ucts. My guest design­er post isn’t until Fri­day so I thought I would show you a few of the oth­er projects I cre­at­ed just to peek your inter­est until then. You can see a gor­geous card Tam­my Tut­terow cre­at­ed and has post­ed on their blog now.

Petaloo Color Me Crazy & Ranger Ink

This mini can­vas was a snap to cre­ate and alter­ing the Petaloo Col­or Me Crazy Petites, But­ter­flies, Fan­cy Frames and Keys are easy breezy lemon squeezy when using any of the prod­ucts Ranger Ink has to offer.

To cre­ate this mini can­vas I first cov­ered the mini can­vas using a Paris themed nap­kin. If you have nev­er used design­er nap­kins as a base for a project fear not as this tech­nique is super sim­ple.

  • First peel the print­ed nap­kin from the sol­id white nap­kin back­ing
  • Using a paint brush and Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Mul­ti Medi­um ~ Mat­te apply the Mul­ti Medi­um all over the can­vas
  • Place the nap­kin on top of the wet Mul­ti Medi­um
  • Gen­tly apply anoth­er coat of Mul­ti Medi­um on top of the nap­kin
  • Once dry you can accent the images using Dia­mond Stick­les.

I real­ly want­ed the Col­or Me Crazy Petites (1535–000) to match the flower col­or on the nap­kin so I could cre­ate a pret­ty 3D effect on the can­vas. So using a blend­ing tool I applied Tim Holtz Dis­tress Ink ~ Scat­tered Straw and I was super hap­py to see that Scat­tered Straw matched the flow­ers on the nap­kin PERFECTLY! Once inked I light­ly mist­ed each flower with water. Mist­ing them with water makes the ink wick into the Col­or Me Crazy Petites allow­ing the ink to blend into the flow­ers beau­ti­ful­ly. Please note the pho­to below was tak­en before the water was applied to each flower.  Next, and of no sur­prise to you all I’m sure, I applied Dia­mond Stick­les to the sta­mens of each flower.

Color Me Crazy Butterflies & Distress Stains

To pull a bit of the dark pink col­or from the nap­kin I thought alter­ing a Col­or Me Crazy But­ter­flies (1539–000) would be the per­fect accent. Again hop­ing to match anoth­er col­or in the nap­kin, this time the dark pink, using a paint brush I applied Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Pick­et Fence over the entire but­ter­fly as I knew if I just applied the Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Fired Brick direct­ly onto the but­ter­fly it would be too red. Next using a paint brush I applied Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Fired Brick… BAM anoth­er per­fect col­or match! To out­line the but­ter­fly wings I used a Ranger Ink White Opaque Pen and of course Dia­mond Stick­les.

Color Me Crazy Fancy Frames & Distress Stain

Lov­ing the beau­ti­ful blue col­or in the nap­kin I decid­ed to alter a Col­or Me Crazy Fan­cy Frames (1580–004) using Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain. Again, I knew if I applied Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Fad­ed Jeans direct­ly onto the Fan­cy Frame it would be too dark. So I first applied a coat of Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Pick­et Fence then light­ly dabbed the Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stain ~ Fad­ed Jeans on top. The blue  this com­bi­na­tion cre­at­ed was PERFECT. I tell ya I was in col­or match­ing heav­en while cre­at­ing this mini can­vas. I accent­ed the Fan­cy Frame using Dia­mond Stick­les.

Color Me Crazy Keys & Metallic Gold

To fin­ish off the piece I decid­ed to accent a Col­or Me Crazy Key (1581–008) using Adiron­dack Acrylic Paint Dab­ber ~ Metal­lic Gold and of course, Dia­mond Stick­les. Once all the embell­ish­ments were dry I attached them to the mini can­vas using a Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Color Me Crazy Collage

I real­ly like how the Col­or Me Crazy Fan­cy Frame, framed the Eif­fel Tow­er per­fect­ly. These Col­or Me Crazy embell­ish­ments worked per­fect­ly in cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful Paris themed 3D col­lage mini can­vas. I hope this project has inspired you to try alter­ing any of the awe­some Petaloo Col­or Me Crazy prod­ucts. They work per­fect­ly with Ranger Ink.
