Fine & Fresco 490...

...cor blimey, did I ever say that I lurve all things Wendy Vecchi? And that I love that new PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint? Am sure I did at some point... well, what better way to spend an evening that playing with two of my favest things.



I used PaperArtsy flower dies to cut some Metal on Card into flower shapes and then coloured these with Fresco Paint... using Cut & Dry to apply it... it goes on a treat to any surface... and I am sure it is magic because if you paint card, it doesn't make it buckle and if you paint metal, it sticks! Clever stuff indeedily.



So... the flowers were ready to be stamped... usually I would use the Hot Pick flowers but I fancied something a little different so I used some of thoese fab backgrounds from the 490 range... stamping in Coffee Archival and then drying with a heatgun. The base of the tag has been crackled and then overstamped with a 490 script, stamping with Distress Stains... Dusty Concord in the this case... but the Stains go marvellously over the paint... just give it a whizz with a heat gun and it is set... see, magic and clever!



Oh and while I am on the Fresco 490 roll... I shall show you a snippet of a little DT piece I made for the Stamp Attic... all the deets are HERE... I made a bottle! Well, actually, I didn't make the bottle, Mr Diet Coke did that but... I did the jazzing up of it. Anyways... I shall love you and leave you.. I have an appointment with the Room of Trash today... yes, I still haven't tidied and yes, I am going to do it... really, I am... I know I keep saying it but I shall... my halo has slipped ever so slightly and it is choking me a bit lol Thanks for looking... TTFN!
