Been having a relaxing crafty play today. Some things for future DT projects, but this was just for fun.
It is may be finished as a hanging, cover or a card, I haven't quite decided yet.
I'll start with the base which is dark grey, wiped over with a finger full of bronze gilding wax .
The next layer is dry embossed through a dotty folder, shaded with vintage photo and broken china distress inks. These two colours were used for all of this project.
The corrogated card is a left over piece, it was painted with acrylics, random stamped and shaded.
The chipboard letters are those I think we all may have lurking somewhere as they are not so popular.
These were painted, stamped and sprayed to get the messy, grungy effect I was hoping for, then rubbed with a little gilding wax. By now my hands were thoroughly inked and needed a scrub.
All the stamps I used were form Stampers Anonymous.
Additions came from my stash including the corner I was looking for a few weeks ago.
Just shows things do surface eventually.
I will be linking this to two challenges-.
Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge -'Chipboard'.
Country View Crafts Challenges.-'Quotes and Sayings'.
The quote was from the 'Stuff to Say' Stampers Anonymous set.
