Today I would like to share with you a card I made as a guest designer for Ten Seconds Studios (TSS) featuring VerDay Metal Paint and VerDay Patina. There will be a materials list at the end of the post if you are interested in any of the products used in the making of this project.
I wanted to create a rusted metal box look for this easel card so I combined the easel card and a match box card box to get the look I wanted. I used the dry brush technique in creating the mat for the front on the card. I love SteamPunk and have a lot of fun doing it my way! The papers used here are from Graphic 45 SteamPunk and Old Curiosity Shoppe Collections.
I would first like to talk about the VerDay Paint and Patina that I used. When Cheryl and Megan first showed us the video’s of the VerDay line I wasn’t to impressed to begin with but as they continued to show us the line I fell in love with all the possibilities that the paints could give me in my crafting endeavors. The first time I “painted” with the VerDay I was won over forever!
To play with it I cut black cardstock into 6”x6” and ran it through the Big Shot with the BDAD 7a mold to get the gear/cog look. One piece I painted before the embossing, one after the embossing and the third one I just dry brushed. I was surprised at the differences achieved in each process.
