GRUNGE GRUNGE GRUNGE CHALLENGE AT THAT'S CRAFTY

I couldn't resist the Grunge, Grunge, Grunge challenge at That's Crafty this week


I used Fresco Paints by PaperArtsy for the background and Treasure Gold on the metal leaves and flowers in Aquamarine and Spanish Gold. I painted the wax straight onto the metal, heated and let them cool before buffing and you get this cool enamelled effect. I mixed them up with some pieces from a broken necklace I had and you can't tell the difference between the two. Impressive! I clearly NEED more Treasure Gold in my life :oD

I'd forgotten how much I LOVE these Squiggly Ink dragonflies from PaperArtsy. I think they look great stamped on black card and embossed in gold. All they needed was a little bead spacer topped with a black pearl to finish.
