Hello lovelies! I do hope you have been enjoying your day. Seems like April is flying by and the sun sure is out in my neck of the woods. Do you see yourself outside more during the warmer months and creating less? My mojo seems to be out gallivanting right now but I was able to create this rusty tag for our new challenge at SanDee&Amelie's Steampunk challenge.
You can create anything your heart desires as long as there is a Steampunkish, Vintage or Industrial vibe. I started with a canvas tag and applied a layer of modeling paste. Once the paste was almost dry, I used multiple stamps and stamped into the paste. You don't have to push hard to get results. I then applied a wash of Prussian Blue Hue.
Here is a close up since I forgot to take more process pics. Oops. I need a new phone with more memory so I can take more pictures. Hehe! But don't you just love those rusty drips and the white highlights from dry brushing? SHARED SECRET-those light bulb chippies have been on three, yep, 3, different designs and I have painted, spritzed, powdered and pull off this chippies every time. Thank goodness I was FINALLY able to use em. Whew! I didn't want to throw em away and was getting frustrated. Lol.
I would love to share this rusty mixed media tag with the fantabulous challenges:
