I am a big fan of Paperartsy. I have lots of their stamps and some 30 bottles of Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics. Therefore, I am very excited about everything that currently goes on on their blog.
On this card I managed to get a nice crackled background. Believe it or not, this was the first time it worked out so good! Thanks to a tutorial on the Paperartsy Youtube channel.
The mechanical man is stamped on acetate and coloured the back with Pansy so that it shows up against the background. A nice tip given by Helen Chilton last week!
The cogs are from a metal sheet. I coloured them with French Roast and Claret, which gives a rusty look.
