Cards with Dusty Attic and Industrial Romance

Hello and welcome Dusty FANattics!
It's Jo here with you today to share with you a couple of cards  I have created.

I have been really enjoying making cards lately and have been gravitating to the DL size ones.

I tried something a little different and had a go at "getting my grunge" on.

For my first card I used some rust effects paste to give my Industrial border some texture.
The Marakesh broken bits I heat embossed with an embossing powder that had a little bit of glitter in for a textured look too.

For the medallion in the middle which my butterfly sits on - I also heat embossed this to give i a bit of a glossy look then went over it with some Prima wax to make it look a little like metal.

For my second card I used the industrial pipes and rubbed some black ink in spots of the chipboard.  Again I used the rust effects paste for the cogls and some embossing folder for the fishing net .

The papers are from Scrapboys collection called Industrial Romance.

Until next time

Happy crafting

July Mood Board - Dusty Attic

Hi and welcome to the blog today.  Thank you for sharing some of your day with us here at Dusty Attic!

Im sharing with you today my take on this months pretty moodboard.

To Enter all you have to do is add your take in the comments section of the Dusty FANattics page on Facebook

Beautiful colours!  Pink and green - one of my favourite colour combinations!

I started my layout by choosing that lovely Ornament trim for down the side of my page.  I covered it with pink paint and then set about layiing some fussy cut flowers on top.  In those flowers I also added the Baroque Floruish which was also covered with pink paint and had a little be of gold wax over the top.

Then I made my paper cluster for my photo to sit on and added the ornate circle frame under my photo.  This was painted gold.  I cut the circle from the Decorate frame and just used the two flourish pieces to the right of my photo, saving the left over for another project.

Here are the links for the Dusty Attic chipboard I used in my layout

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you find some time to play along with this months mood board.

Until next time

Stay well, stay safe
