Metallic Distress Paint Tag – Life

Hi everyone,

We have house guests at the moment, so just a quick post today to show a few metallic distress paint tag backgrounds plus a completed tag.  The metallic distress paints are as fun as I thought they would be and make great backgrounds with the other distress paints too.  The shimmer is just lovely which you can see a little in the picture.


For my completed tag, I decided to go for a tone on tone look with the Antique Bronze distress paint so I used it on just about everything :).  I swiped the edges with the paint dabber and added a little over the top of my metal prima flower.  I also applied the paint directly to the ‘Life’ piece of chipboard (which I had previously cut apart and used the other part of a different project) and also to the Prima wooden leaf.  The effect is slightly different because of the different surfaces.  It was also easy to colour the crinkle ribbon with the distress paint and it dried in a few minutes even without the heat gun.

Thanks for stopping by,
