Hi again, I've been trying to make a rust effect with distress paints.
To start with I diecut the tag and embossed it with a distressed stripes folder
I don't have a lot of paint colours but used a couple of browns, antique bronze, fossilized amber and dried marigold. I added some grit paste and then more paint on top of that too, spritzed with water and dried off.
I brushed some walnut stain and black soot distress ink around the edges though it's hard to see in the pic.
The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto tissue paper and glued on with multi matte medium.
The butterflies are coloured with inktense pencils.
I'm adding another entry to the rustification challenge at Paper Artsy.
There are lots of gorgeous pics for inspiration and amazing projects by the DT.
I'm also linking up to Addicted to Stamps & More whwre the theme is to make your mark.
