Metallics



In between cooking and studying and doing exams I managed to fit in a challenge. This months Inkurables challenge is Metallics so here's my entry, now if only I can remember how I did the background...........

Wooden Tag was base coated in an olive green paint and sanded back. I then sprayed over the whole piece with green Matisse ink and gave it a blast with the heat gun. Next came a generous spray of Matisse copper ink and made it quite wet then blasted it quite closely with the heat gun which caused some parts to crack. Gave it another sand then stamped over it with Inkadinkadoo (I think) Rockstar. The frame is grunge board treated the same way as the base. The mask and other emphemera is from an old brooch which broke (I was devastated!).
