PaperArtsy blog #Topic RUSTY EMBLEM with EAB

Hi everyone, it's Etsuko happy with you todayand I'd like to share with you ......

This time I put Alison's fabulous new stamp in the emblem and decorated with frame. And I made iron rust and patina with Fresco Paints. It is not so difficult to make patina but it was difficult to resemble iron rust, I added micro beads as a supplement.

I used Alison Bomber's EAB05 quote stamp

I wanted to give rust and winter atmosphere with simple color inside this frame.

I painted Smoked PaprikaBrown Shed, Blood Orange, Chocolate PuddingMud Splat and little Black Dress over and over on the white paper.

Then I embossed   Scrapcosy's ESC09 frames using 'seafoam white' embossing powder.

Next I made emblem stamped with Scrapcosy's ESC09 using  Apoxie clay. This clay becomes like a resin when it dried and it can make fine details. 
I made a patina on the emblem using Hey Pesto, Green Olive, Captain PeacockChocolate Pudding and Little Black DressFresco Chalk Paints and finished it with Treasure Gold. Also I made crackle using Space CadetChalk and Crackle Glaze on the white card for the back ground.

I wanted to need some dimensional pieces to the emblem. Then I decided to make on white holly leaves using  Scrapcosy's ESC07 by Green Man,Olive Tree infusions and white embossing powder.

Finally I made the wintry background using Scrapcosy ESC07 stamp, and Distress Inks: Iced Spruce OxideBroken China Oxide, Vintage Photo ink, clear crack paste and micro beads.

And here is the finished sample. I used an Alison Bomber quote featured on the central emblem.

And I also made a couple of tags, also using Alison's Stamps
Eclectica {Alison Bomber} Set 03 as well as Set 05 featured at the top of this post.

I enjoyed mixing paint an ordinary way but there are various methods of rust and I am looking forward to seeing what you make. 

Thank you so much joining me and hope you like it.
