Rustic Style Tag

I came across this video by France Papillon which I partly used to create this tag but obviously me being me, I wavered off and put my own slant on it.

Added a coat of white tinting base, a layer of weathered wood on the stencilled area and then a coat of paynes grey and dark grey and wiped back.

After a layer of ultra matte media varnish I applied a layer of patina antiquing cream and again wiped back.

Added quinacridone gold.

Next I added champagne metallic lustre over some of the stencilling.

Added more quin gold until I was happy with the look.

Added some script stamping with white chalky paint and coloured a few chipboard pieces.

Wrapped rusty wire around the circle and added the heart.

Close up of the stenciling and quin gold over the lustre.

Close up of the top of the tag, more metallic lustre and the stamping.

And finally the finished tag.

All products are from the DecoArt range.
