Over at Stampotique this week is Handles, hinges, buckles, fasteners, pulls
I have used handles, hinges, buckles and fasteners.
I started with an empty small suitcase. These you can purchase from the Range for a couple of pounds.
I then used the faux rustic look by painting it in black acrylic paint then a coat of PVC glue (cheap and nastier the better) then painting a further colour of acrylic paint over this. I used Fawn. Then get a heat tool and heat up the acrylic paint. The glue acts as a barrier causing the paint to crackle and bubble. Fab eh!
I then got some old acrylic tags, decorated them in different papers and embellishments and put the saying onto the tag:
The average woman packs 26 items in her suitcase that she’ll never need.
I then coloured ‘Relaxin‘ with Promarkers and cut her out. I added a piece of chain with key, coins, safety pins, and metal embellishments attached to it. I took a piece of tissue paper and stamped the flower randomly all over it in Versamark then heat set with WOW gold embossing powder.
Hope you have a fab week….Sue
