Bring on the Rust by Debs Wainwright

Hello everyone I hope you are all well and enjoying the festivities  as well as getting some crafty time. I have been fortunate to play with some of That's Crafty’s new stencils and substrates. 

Here's what I did

Using an MDF board and black craft paste I stencilled the cogs where I wanted them. As I lifted my craft knife I stippled the paste to create a rough surface. Once it was dry I gave it two coats of acrylic paint, making sure that the colour sat in the grooves as this added more colour creating the rusty look I was after. I put this to on side to dry.

I used two ATC's one with a frame and one without. On the frame I applied craft sand and  painted it black. Once it was dry I gave it two coats of the same colour as the board.

The ATCs, I painted both with white crackle paint and once dry, I applied Red Oxide antiquing cream which just highlighted the cracks a little more. I blackened the edges and stencilled my words. I took a tiny bulldog clip and heat embossed it with Frantage powder in ochre and then added the rust paint.

For the heart I added a thin layer of craft paste which I stippled. I gave it two coats of paint and then highlighted it with Metallic Lustre in copper.

To finish I added a rose made from Sculpy polymer clay in a mould. I used the Metallic Lustre here and there to give a few highlights.

What I used
