Rusty Bits by Lynne Moncrieff


Sharing another of the ATCs made for the launch of the That’s Crafty! ATC Unit on HOCHANDA.


PaperArtsy Stamp Sets JOFY – 12 and 14
                                   ESN – 13
Fresco Chalk Finish Acrylic Paints:- Antarctic, Smurf, Chalk
Extra:- Rusty Tin Wire


Apply the Frank Garcia powders and Distress Crayons to the ATC, misting with water and leaving to dry followed with a coating of clear Gesso.

Stamp images with white Gesso and Potting Soil ink, doodling with the white paint pen.  I also splattered the paint from the pen directly onto the ATC. 

Now the stamping is done and dusted, stencil the Screwheads with Grunge Paste.

Once dry, coil rusty tin wire and adhere to the ATC, they are a fun way to embellish flowers.

Finally, apply a random patch of dry brushed Fresco.

Until next time,

All that white popping out from the brown background with it's ghostly doodlings underneath. The rusty-wire flowers is genius! Wonderful job, Lynne, and thanks for sharing. inkybru xx
