Got you Jam fans singing yet? Well break out your sideburns and get ready for another masculine card using one of the London Underground poster images from Nicecrane Designs.
The background panel is one of those I created using Silver Ferro texture paste. Once embossed it was distressed with a combination of all three metallic Distress Stains. They were dotted around randomly and then rubbed into the dried paste with my digits (oh yes, never happier than when I'm covered in ink!!) Both panels were layered onto textured gold card and edged with a swipe of Rennaissance Treasure Gold.
Then for the clever(?) bit. To add a touch more interest I wanted to add some stamping. To do this I stamped Indigo Blu cogs onto tissue paper using black Archival Ink. Then a mix of Wild Honey, Pine Needles and Faded Jeans Distress Inks were mixed onto the back of the tissue with a spot of water and a lot of care. Once dry the tissue was torn roughly and applied to the background with matte Glue n Seal (one of my crafting essentials).
The poster image needed distressing so I used a trick I saw on Brenda Brown's superb blog - having given it a couple of coats of clear UTEE I popped it in the freezer. It didn't take long to harden and at that point was ready to bend and crack randomly. Then I rubbed Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain into those cracks and let it dry. Finally I gave it a layer of that Glue n Seal to stop the UTEE peeling off completely.
'Children in the Victorian Age', an absolute gem of mixed media work produced by a wonderful crafter.
