Hi folks and welcome to today's post for Tando Creative. This weeks theme is 'glossy or shiny'.
I used one of the Tando long tags and I wanted to create lots of different texture to compliment the shiny parts.
Here is what I created...
I first applied a piece of paper on the surface of the tag with PVA glue.
I then created a mixture of DecoArt white gesso, glue and cornflour to create a really thick texture paste that is similar to the consistency of decorating filler. I applied a thick layer of mixture to the tag over the Tando distressed harlequin stencil.
When the mixture was spread over the stencil I stippled the surface with a pallet knife to give it a rough texture on top. I also added some of the mixture around the edge of the tag and on the centre of the tag.
When it was dried I painted the tag with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics. I applied the paint thick in some areas and thinly in others so the paint would run around the shapes the texture paste mixture had created.
I painted a piece of white card with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and left to dry. I stamped the Carabelle Studio 'Libellule' (dragonfly) stamp with Onyx Black Versafine ink. And the sentiment from the Katzelkraft Dreamer stamp set.
I fussy cut the dragonflies and the sentiment, covered them with clear embossing ink then clear ultra thick embossing enamel powder and melted the powder with a heat gun to create a glossy, shiny layer.
I adhered the dragonflies and the sentiment to the tag. I tied some black organza ribbon around the top of the tag and heated it with the heat gun to melt the ribbon slightly.
Here is everything I used...
All the Tando Creative and DecoArt items I used are available on the Tando website.
