Next i did some stenciling. I mixed a custom paste using Finnabair light paste with magic paint in rose gold and used the Finnabair gothic stencil. When you dry this paste it puffs up nicely and is described as a marshmallow texture. I had a little paste left on the stencil so flipped it over and pushed it the other way through the stencil using some kitchen roll.
This was now quite a bold colour and i wanted to bring it to more of a vintage, rust feel. I therefore added matte waxes in rusty red, rusty brown and old white.
I wanted to start building my layers now. I chose some of my embellishments made with Prima moulds and modeling material and some cogs from Hobilicious. I covered these with black gesso from Fabrika Decoru.
I attached these to the tag using some offcut chipboard pieces and some Prima 3d gel
I coloured the cogs using the same waxes
I then added light touches of metallique paint to give a slight rusty shine.
I created a title for my tag using the new Tiny Text stamp set from Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous and inked with my favourite versafine clair ink in nocturne. I used paper from AB studio Neverland range.
I mounted the stamped piece on chipboard scraps using the 3D gel again and finished with splatters of watered down white gesso.
