Technique Week - Cracks & Crevices

Morning everyone,

Nikki here today with my take on this weeks theme, 'Cracks & Crevices'.

I absolutely love these components from Tando Creative, I used a media board, and hearts and wings, and the fab mini skulls to make this darker than dark piece.

I used DecoArt chalk paints and crackle to create the deep cracks on the Media board, and then gave a very dark wash of colour around the edges.  I stamped onto the heart with Andy's crackle stamp in paint.  Once dry I painted over the top of the stamping in black, this gave a textured cracked effect.

The Tando mini skull was given a rust treatment (Andy skinner technique), and the wings painted black and stamped.

I adhered strips of torn paper from an old book, and edged the tag in carbon black, and some stencilling, and edging with a posca pen finishes it all off.

You can find all of the products used over at the Tando Creative Store, and don't forget to join us on facebook in Tando's Creative Zone, we'd love to see your own makes, and you can keep up with all the new products and workshop news!

Bye for now,

Nikki K.
