Rice Papers & Rust - by Nikki K

Morning everyone,

Today I thought I would share a tag I have made with Andy's new Rice Papers, and fab Strata Paste.

I started with the Vintage pack of papers, and took the wood effect paper and glued to an mdf tag with matt medium.  On top of that I took a piece with a vintage lable on, and wet the edges to tear the paper easily.  This was glued on top of the first.

I gave the tag a wash of very watered down Raw Umber paint, to blend the colours of the rice papers better, and then added a little quinacridone gold in a wash.  It just toned it all down.

With a palette knife, I added Strata Paste roughly around the edges of the tag, more in some places than others.  This was then given a wash of  Raw Umber, and some Quinacridone Gold in places. 

The mdf butterfly and scroll were first painted in neat Raw Umber, then I used the new Stonewash Stamp to give the background some detail.  Over that I painted Quinacridone Gold to add the rust effect.  The top layer of the butterfly was also given the rust treatment.

A piece of wire was threaded through the Tag, and curled round a paintbrush on each side to finish.

Have fun crafting,
