Antiquing Cream Play


Embossed heart, painted black, painted with patina antiquing cream and rubbed back, quinacridone gold added over the top.


Embossed heart, painted with excess primary elements, painted with cream antiquing cream and rubbed back, quinacridone gold added over the top.


Embossed heart, painted black, painted with English red oxide antiquing cream and rubbed back.


And this is the same photo but I've auto corrected the colour as it's more true to the actual.


And this is exactly the same as above except I added quinacridone gold added over the top.


And this is it under the auto correct button.


This is one of the TH dragonfly emboss and die cuts that Emma cut for me. The tail has been heated to created bubble texture and the wings painted with patina antiquing cream, rubbed back and tinted with quinacridone gold.


From another angle. I placed a little cork under the body to lift it up.


A close up of the main part of the body and tail.


This tag was embossed with a couple of different folders, coloured with light grey paint, covered in black antiquing cream, rubbed back. A layer of PA satin glaze added to seal the black. Cream antiquing cream added over the top and rubbed back, another layer of PA satin glaze. Finally a very thin layer of quinacridone gold added over the top.


Same tag but just used the auto correct on it.


Then I laid the dragonfly over the top for contrast to show all the different colours.


And again, this is the same photo which has been auto corrected on the colours as it's so dark here today due to the constant rain.
