Faux Metal @ Tando

Hi folks and welcome to my blog post for Tando. This week we have been faking it, or rather faux-ing it! Faux metal is the theme. 

And here is my creation...

I used one of the tags from the Tando tags mega bundle and gave it a coat of DecoArt white Gesso.

I added a good thick layer of DecoArt Texture Sand paste around the edges of the tag and allowed it to dry. 

I painted the tag with the new DecoArt Americana Premium Acrylic Paints using Quinacridone Gold, Paynes Grey, Pyrrole Red, Cobalt Turquoise, Diarylide Yellow.

I stamped the Technique Tuesday Scritch Scratch stamp with Walnut Distress Oxide ink in random areas over the tag to add some texture.

I used one of the stamps from Andy Skinner's Unexplained stamp set and stamped it along the edge of the stamp with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink then over the top with Onyx Black Versafine ink. 

To finish, I wrapped so rusty coloured twine around the hole of the tag.

Here is everything I used...
