Hi everyone and welcome. It is the second week of the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie - 'No Time to Waste' which means it's time to share my DT sample.
There was a fair amount of experimentation involved with creating this card as the basis is my new Metallic Distress Paints (and you'll never guess what - they seriously live up to expectations!!!)
Time is the theme but I didn't want to go for the obvious. One of the older 'collage style' Texture Fades embossing folders has a clock image on it in the bottom right-hand corner - result. Having used it on white card I spread the three Metallic Distress Paints onto my craft mat and rolled them onto the raised areas with a brayer. This gives a nice smooth finish though don't expect perfect coverage - it's paint after all but that just adds to the interest of the finished background.
Having added a layer of DS Antique Linen over the paint, patches of DI Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky and Shaded Lilac were blended on top and then spritzed/blotted with water to give a more mottled finish. The three panels were finished by distressing the edges, blending DI Walnut Stain around the sides and applying DS Brushed Corduroy to the edges.
The gentleman was created in a similar way to the puzzle pieces HERE using Brett Weldele's tutorial. You'll be able to see in the previous photo that the pocket watch was clear embossed to make it stand out. At this point it became clear that something else was needed in the background, so a viewfinder die cut piece was covered in Metallic DP's and Verdigris Embossing Powder was sprinkled in patches over the top. Alcohol ink coloured acetate was applied to the reverse to make it stand out more. Finally a sentiment and some filigree metal corners (covered with more Metallic DP and black Archival Ink) completed the look.
Hope you are inspired to play with these paints and create your own time inspired project for the Frilly and Funkie challenge. There's a winners badge and a $25 shopping spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique up for grabs for those who do. For now, hop over to the challenge to see what the rest of the team have been up to (you're in for a treat) and take care of yourselves, hugs Jenny x
