For ATC and small gift tag:
Apply black modeling paste through stencil and leave to dry.

Instruction #2 - unnamed-227

Use a permanent ink, stamp image onto the fabric as required. Always give a quick blast of your heat gun to stop the ink bleeding.

Instruction #3 - unnamed-320

Stamp onto the dry modeling paste using Chalky Finish - gives very crisp results every time! Always brush a little of the chalky paint out on a craft sheet, keeping it fairly thin. Tap the stamp lightly into the paint a couple of times and then apply. Clean stamp immediately!


Instruction #4 - unnamed-438

Using the same technique with Media Fluid Acrylics, stamp marks onto the fabric to represent aging.

Instruction #5 - unnamed-530

For the ATC:
Make a quite using a vintage label machine.

For the Gift Label:
Add a metal eyelet. Tie some jute string through the eyelet or ribbon of your choice.

For the Wall Plaque:
Cut a piece of foam board to the size required – this one is cut approximately two cms larger than the die cut stamp shape. Adhere chipboard shapes. Roughen the edges of the foam board with a craft knife to give the final piece a worn look.

Paint everything with two coats of the Dark Grey Value 3. Remember to paint the sides of the piece.

Instruction #11 - unnamed-12

Create a rust finish using your favorite method. I used an Andy Skinner technique. The finished project has two little rusty wire loops to hang it from.

Instruction #12 - unnamed-13

Add stenciled details using Titan Buff Media Fluid Acrylic.

Instruction #13 - unnamed-14

Age the stenciled images with some Quinacridone Gold and Carbon Black applied neat to the Titan Buff.

Love the stamping over the eyes on the ATC and the grungy, rusted effects on the plaque. Great job Julia.

Just such amazing effects & results. Brilliant mix of bright with industrial. I NEED that stencil with the man on (soz, don't know name & too tired to look, will check again)... I actually wish I owned all decoArt & Andy Skinner products. Bank managers just don't understand crafters!! Lol. Fabulous post. AGAIN! C
