This is something I created using Artistic Outpost’s plate, Hero, that was released last month.
Stamps: Hero (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Prism, Natural White, Boxer (Basic Grey)
Ink: Ranger Embossing Ink, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Accessories: Brick Red Distress Powder, sponge for aging edges, wrought iron corner punch, vintage brads, key tag punch, Old Paper and Brick Red Distress Crackle Paint, tearing edge ruler
I used Distress Crackle paint (two colors) to paint some interest on the Boxer patterned paper. The cool thing about the paint is that I don’t have to find a brush-the brushes are attaced inside the cover, so that makes it very handy! I dried the paint between layers with a heat gun to speed up the process. All the antiquing was done with a sponge. A sponge yields a "softer" look to the aging.
I used a tearing edge ruler for the main image, but don’t remember the brand. I know it isn’t SU! or Fiskars…will try to add that info later.
I love the old look that these colors yielded…and red and natural look so good together.
Thanks for looking, and have great weekend!
