They have such a lovely metal sheen, and wonderful coverage! After layering on my paint I used Distress Inks to sponge on some colour on the remaining unpainted areas of the tag. I love how the paints just pop and look like they're actually added on top of the Distress Inks! After that I stamped an image with Ranger Archival Black Ink.
Next, I used a Dina Wakley stencil to add some Texture Paste to my project and added one of the metal pieces I painted with those fun Finnabair Paints. I heated it with a heat gun, so it actually bubbled a bit, and I think if I'd let it air dry it would have been smoother. But hey, sometimes a girl just can't wait, right?! I cut a Tim Holtz Sticker from the Chit Chat book in half and added it behind my metal frame.
Here's a look at my finished tag -
The little wooden butterfly and dragonfly easily coloured up with Distress Markers and the sequins add an extra bit of shimmer and shine around the page.
You can see how nicely the chipboard with the heart cutout covered using the Art Alchemy paints. This was just one coat! I layered on a left over Heartfelt Creations flower from Holly's Make 'n Take last week, adding some Stickles, and tied on my seam binding ribbon that I coloured with Distress Stains.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll pull out some paints and use them on something you haven't tried before!
