Tim Holtz Villainous Potion Distress Ink

Hey crafty friends! If you haven't already heard, Tim Holtz just added another new color to the Distress family and it's called Villainous Potion! The color truly lives up to its name and it's definitely put a spell on me! I'm finally getting around to playing with the new color and it's giving me all the Halloween vibes right now. Of course, purple isn't just for Halloween. It's a gorgeous color that can be used all year long, so I'm sure it will be making an appearance in an upcoming Christmas project or two just for starters!

Villainous Potion Distress Ink Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Tim Holtz Villainous Potion Distress Ink

Here I used the Villainous Potion Distress Ink Spray and Distress Oxide Spray to create my background. I began by applying Ranger Distress Crackle Paste through the Decayed Stencil using a palette knife onto a piece of Distress Watercolor. Once it was dry, I sprayed the paper with Villainous Potion Distress Ink Spray, heat dried it, then added a bit of Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Spray, dried it again and then added a bit of Bubbling Cauldron Distress Mica Stain.

The butterfly was created by die cutting a piece of silver metallic kraftstock using the Tattered Butterfly Bigz Die. I then inked the paper with embossing ink, sprinkled it with Villainous Potion Distress Embossing Glaze and heat embossed it. Once the heat embossing was completed, I crinkled the wings of the butterfly and added some Black Soot Distress Crayon to give it a more distressed look.
The next layer of the butterfly was created by melting one of the butterfly transparencies in the Halloween Transparencies using my embossing gun. Please do this in a well ventilated area or even outside since you are melting plastic. I then finished off the butterfly by adding a Halloween Mini Flair Button. I thought the eye was fitting to help draw your eye to the center of the design! 

The other embellishments include some Halloween stickers and ephemera. I also layered in some die cuts from black cardstock using the Skeleton Leaves Thinlits and Funky Wreath Thinlits.
