Tick Tock

PA have a challenge theme of shiny stuff which you can see here. So I blinged up an MDF wooden tag using gems, metal, metallic lustre and metal embellishments.

I stencilled some white modelling paste through the TH honeycomb stencil and pounced some up the sides using the back of the spatula. Once dry I applied a coat of white gesso and then coloured with green gold media paint and went over the textured areas with phthalo green-blue.

Close up of the coloured texture.

I added brilliant turquoise metallic lustre over the texture for more bling.

I added metallic cog and clock embellishments and a tag and safety pin.

I switched the hat on the LP image with a clock and cog related one from Choc Baroque and coloured it with metallic silver and gold.

And finally I added a strip of fancy metal which I picked up last year at Version Scrap and added some gold coloured gemstones.
