I love faux finishes of all descriptions whether it be rust, stone, leather or time worn vintage. You name it we have the power to fake it! I'd like to see your projects that include at least one faux finish. Produce anything you like but please include some stamping or stencilling or both if your heart desires!
Here's my make!
I enjoyed using a stamp set from tracy evans at allandcreate and lovely baked textures by seth apter - i used the chunky rust and the patina oxide in this creation - I was, of course, trying to creat faux rust!
I started with a tag and some distress oxides and a distress ink....
I used these to colour the tag then added some chunky rust to the outside using versamark as a sticking medium...I then heat set.
Next, through the Tim Holtz bubbles stencil I added some versa mark then added the patina oxide
and heat set
Next I added some tim holtz resist spray and more chunky rust, heat set, more spray, and patina oxide. I was liking it at this point so went on to do some stamping. First I stamped some words on the tag....
Then I used more distress ink and coloured a piece of card before stamping in versamark and adding chunky rust then heat setting and then cutting out the butterflies and dragonflies before adding them to the tag. I also coated a compass diecut from tando with versmark and then added chunky rust and heat set.
Here's what the tag looked like until I added a couple of Tim Holtz words.
I hope you can join us! You'll find the link here.
I would like to enter my tag into the challenge at mixed-media-monthly-challenge-48 where the theme is rust.
