I loved the look of Tin Type online, that when my Design Team Box arrived i couldn't wait to dig in. When i saw the Painters Tray in the DT Box, all the lovely inks and the Tin Type line in real life, i knew exactly what i wanted to do, I wanted to incorporate some ink blending on my first DT Project
To begin, I used three colours of Powder Puff Inks on this project by blending them together with each colour. Mango Mai Tai, the new Baja Blue ( love this colour) and Mocha Mama I heat set it to dry. Once it was dry, i used a Hero Arts script stamp, and Mocha Mama and stamped over the entire Painters Tray. I then heat set it to dry again, i didnt want to take any chances that i might touch it accidentally and smear the ink.
Cracked Glass Technique:
I covered the Gears with the same colours of ink i used on the painters tray. I then heat set them to dry, and covered each gear with versa mark, then coated them with UTEE, and heat set. I repeated this step three times on each gear until i achieved the look i wanted ( clear like glass) i then let these cool. Once they were cool, i bent each Gear and cracked the UTEE.
some detail shots:
The "I will always love you" is from the Itty Bitty Velum Quotes, i cut it down to size to fit the
Chipboard Frame! and then i popped it using foam adhesive. Actually all the frames on this project are popped as are the photos.
