The creative juices have been flowing, designed some new chipboard and stencils for layouts and cards. I ordered some paper from 13arts some really fun papers!
I used Lindy's magicals for background colors, some gold embossing enamel and rusty chipboard.
I started by painting them white, then gave a light sanding and inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. The ink settles into the sanded portion and wipes of the painted areas.
Next added some rusty colors, dark reddish brown, orange-ish brown, and a little teal color for patina.
I love the final look, I also the negative space created by the pipes.
The vellum in action!
I used gel medium to glue onto the page.
For these light I painted black, then lightly sanded and inked. Added the rusty finish with reddish brown, orange-ish brown paints then covered with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. The Dimensional magic makes the light look enamel, like the real ones.
I made the tags with pattern papers, and added stitching around, sewing on any page is always fun!
