Hi everyone! Dee here with my rust post for this weeks challenge. Those of you who know my work will know this is one of my favourite effects to recreate. This time though I used Pentart rust effect powder and regents and I must say I am pretty happy with the results. I also made my home made tissue paper with Stamparama stamps and used that on tag 2 and 3.


Tag 1
Firstly I painted the tag with Relic chalk paint next I used iron paste mixed with a few art stones at the base of a size 7 tag that had been cut and gouged with a craft knife. Next I used the iron powder over this and followed with the reagents liquids.

 I used a small amount of mica fragments to enhance the rust. Once developed I then used weather wood over the top part of the tag, once dry I then followed with Everlasting chalk paint and waited for it to crack. Using a small heart out of Tando's new heart collection I put dimensional paste on it then painted it and blinged it up with Treasure gold. Finally Hannah Oxberry's rusty wire wound in a circle around the heart.

Tag 2
The same as tag 1 but a sprinkling of sand glitter in the wet paint and a compass and another design of my handmade tissue paper.

Tag 3
Covered entirely with hand made tissue paper adhered to the tag with Matt medium if you look closely you can see flashed of gold and splashes of Raw Umber and Prussian Blue Hue.

Valentines over at Tando creative.

Hi everyone I hope you are all well it feels like a while since I was here although its only a couple of weeks . I have a heart for you today as it is Valentines day so would be rude not to. 

  • Take a large heart from Tando and distressed it up a bit with my craft knife.
  • Using a stencil brush dab Gesso onto it until happy with the texture of it. 
  • Make a grove in with an artist pick from the top to half way down
  • Watery washes of Cobalt Teal dry in between coats.
  • Prussian blue hue was used around the edges taking a baby wipe to blend in.
  • Quinacridone gold was then used in the same way. 
  • Take a Versa fine ink pad and dab onto the areas you want to emboss.
  • Sprinkle ageing gold embossing powder over the heart.
  • Heat set.

  • Add gems and embellishments.
  • Tripple emboss a stamp and cut out to go under neath the heart when you mount it.
