Anything Goes @ Tando

Good morning folks. This week at Tando it's an Anything Goes week. So I've chosen to share with you a sample I did for the Tando Creative show on Hochanda a few weeks ago.

Here is my creation...

First, I stuck the door frame pieces together and used the Tando 6 x 6 crocodile stencil with DecoArt white modelling paste to create the stone work. When it was dry, I mixed DecoArt black gesso and DecoArt white gesso together to make a grey tone and painted the door frame. 

I adhered the door pieces together and covered with DecoArt crackle paint. I put some DecoArt sand texture paste on the door hinges and handle. I painted all the door pieces with a selection of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paints. I then stamped on the door using a stamp from Andy Skinner's Industrial stamp set.

I painted the mushroom with DecoArt Media paints and used some white modelling paste to create the 3D white spots. 

I dabbed sand texture paste and crackle paint on the leaves then painted them.

I love playing with the Tando Faery Doors as you can incorporate loads of different textures and techniques to create something fun or a bit more realistic. 

Thanks for popping by,
hope to see you soon,

Embossing Crystals @ Tando

Hello folks and welcome to today's Tando post. This weeks theme is embossing crystals. 
I love playing with embossing powders, especially ultra thick embossing enamel and adding lots of colours together. Even clear embossing powder is fabulous to play with as gilding flakes and other weird objects can be trapped inside.

Here is my creation...

For this weeks challenge I used the Tando 80mm x 16mm mixed media boards. 

First I applied a thick layer of DecoArt white modelling paste over a blank mixed media board. When it was dry I used DecoArt Media Misters in turquoise shimmer, white shimmer, yellow green and purple to colour the background. 

I then used embossing ink to cover the entire board and heat embossed clear UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) over the top. I applied a couple of layers of UTEE to create a really thick layer.

I then used Comic Shimmer Tropic Moss Glaze embossing powder over the centre of the board and melted it slowly. 

I then inked Katzelkraft seahorse stamp with black VersaFine ink whilst keeping the powder in the centre of the board molten. I then quickly applied the stamp to the molten powder and left the stamp in place until the powder had cooled. 

To finish, I punched a hole in the top corner of the board, added an eyelet and threaded some blue satin ribbon and some white organza ribbon through.

Thanks for popping by today,
hope to see you again soon.
