I know it’s been a little while since I shared a project on here with you all so showcasing the oh so popular Industrial Chic set was a natural fit!
I wanted to create a simple yet technique filled project to showcase the beauty and versatility of this fabulous set. I have been obsessed with rusty, patina looks since I can remember so when I developed this set this is what I had in mind.
You can see by this photo how combining the sprays with the coordinating embossing powders gives this watercolor paper a rusty patina look that is so lovely ( youtube tutorial tomorrow)
Matting the card with coordinating patterned paper and cardstock allows the effect to truly come to life.
In this photo you can see I used the the Vintage Globe Sizzix Die by Tim Holtz and I cut it apart so I could dimentionalize the globe to give the card some depth.
I used a combination of Queen Sheba’s Silver and Byzantine Bronze to create the rusty look of the globe stand. The depth of the water is done by drying your die cut after it has been sprayed and not allowing it to dry on it’s own.
Lastly I sprayed a white piece of cardstock with Time Travel Teal and Steampunk Sepia and stamped these words for thought by Stamper’s Anonnymous – Tim Holtz Collection.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Here are the products I used to create this card
- Industrial Chic Mega Set
