Rusted stencilling

Hi crafters. Today’s card uses some newly acquired stencils, paints and a paste. I started with watercolour paper and the Savvy and Stackers stencils from Paper Smooches. I roughly put some Nuvo expanding mousse in worn linen through the stencils and heated it to puff it up. I coated the surface in clear gesso and added Infusions and Color Burst powders. I misted these and added layers. It wasn’t intense enough so I added distress stains and Arteza marker on top. I also added some Prima Metallique paints in Dark Forest and Green Olive. I rubbed on some Faber Castell copper paste and added copper embossing. There is also some Prima rust paste in there.

I decided to add a 3D element with some copper wire from a broken IKEA light. I shaped the wire and threaded one end through a hole I poked in the panel. I copper embossed the Paper Smooches sentiment from the Slang Gang Stamp set on a piece of scrap. I cut it out with a MFT triangle die and added stains and paints and copper paste to it. I attached it to the bent wire and put 3 layers of foam tape behind it. At the end I added some stamping with Prima Solar Luna for a little texture plus spatters in Ground Espresso distress ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Happy crafting,

Christine
