Texture and Some....

New crafting goodies arrived this week and had so much fun playing with them.

Here is my Tag......

The Tag was inspired by the challenge mood board over at 13@arts
My starting point was the vintage book pages, the door and the blue pattern.

I applied white gesso and strips from an old dictionary to the die cut tag.
White embossing paste and two stencils were used for the door and the tiles.
Lots of structure grit paste and crackle paste was scrapped on randomly.
I used white embossing paste through another stencil onto tissue for the sentiment.
Various inks, sprays and acrylic paints were used,
knocking them back with white heavy gesso.
Finishing off with splats and hi-lighting some of the texture with a hint of gold wax.
Thank you for finding the time to stop by, I really do appreciate it.
Hope you are all keeping well and safe?
Challenges I would love to enter.....

Tone on Tone

 Today's card is a mix of stencils and medias to achieve a Tone on Tone effect....

Here is My Card.....

Distress inks where used, along with two stencils.
Embossing paste and Crackle paste where also used.
The embossing paste helps with the tone on tone effect,
as it soaks up the colour underneath and gives another layering and tonal effect.
I finished off with a strip of foil and a sentiment stamped in brown
and heat embossed with white on top.
