Silvery Tag

Another tag?  I just realized I haven't posted a card in forever.  I will have to focus on putting my ideas on a card next.

Linda's Tag #11 this week is all silvery and uses metal.  I took a little detour and tried my own way of creating a  similar effect. (sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique)  I loved how elegant and industrial the foil looked on Linda's tag.  I am also entering this into the Artistic Outpost Monthly challenge.

 

I started with white cardstock which I applied a layer of white gesso and while it was wet I attached a series of cardboard snowflakes and used gesso to paint them onto the tag.  I let that thoroughly dry out. .  (Just occurred to me I have black gesso and could have used that as a base. DUH!)  I then applied a layer of black spray.  That soaked in too much so I added a layer of black paint.  After the paint I  waited for it to dry and then sponged silver paint onto the snowflakes and used my fingers to smear it around the snowflakes.

After that I wanted to just leave the snowflakes by themselves but decided to add a mini tag with the Vintage Santa from Artistic outpost Snowy Woods. 

Have a wonderful wednesday!

  1. Gorgeous, Sue! I love how you adapted the products you had to create Shelly's faux galvanized metal technique. Your snowflakes look amazing and I agree that you shouldn't cover them up. Off setting the vintage Santa was the perfect way to accomplish that. I like that you kept my touch of turquoise too. I think that looks lovely against the antiqued silver look. Super take on Tag #11!

    Hugs,
    Linda
