After watching the rewind shows of Andy Skinner and DecoArt on Hochanda I was inspired to have a play yesterday. I didn't really have anything in mind, just got a few pieces of mdf out and tried out some techniques, most of which I've done before. Was slightly gutted when I emptied my whole mdf box to find I'd got no large tags left :o(
As I say, I had no real idea of what was going to go with what, so this morning once everything was completely dry, I started to assemble pieces and these are what I came up with.
The mini dream tag was originally meant for this background, but I love how the colours in the heart just co-ordinated perfectly.
I used prussian blue hue to enhance the cracks in the heart.
Lots of rust techniques going on in this one.

I wanted to put this on a tag with a white background with a large crackle but instead I used a piece of embossed rust effect card and a piece of corrugated that I'd made at some other time.
Close up of the heart which was stamped and crackled on the 3 corners and then black antiquing cream used to enhance the cracks.

This was one of Andy's new techniques, well the technique isn't new, it's the product you use that is different, luckily I had some triple thick glaze and the colours dispersed perfectly.
I stenciled the word onto a mini mdf tag and covered with clear media crackle and I got some wonderful cracks. I used white antiquing cream to enhance them.
And finally my large heart simply painted with relic and stamped with one of Andy's background stamps in everlasting chalky paint.
