Tando Sponsor Spotlight No 2

Hello everyone! Laura here to welcome you to the last of this month's Sponsor Spotlights!

This month our Sponsor is Tando Creative and there is a wonderful prize waiting to be won by a randomly selected entry to our challenge this month which is hosted by our wonderful Julia!

                                                      I chose these Tando goodies

And here is my finished creation...

I decided to use a wooden heart plaque for this creation. This was coated with Matte Medium and some Tim Holz idea-ology tissue wrap was applied. When dry it was brushed with some watered down Vintage Lace Fresco paint and the edges of the hanging were dabbed with Walnut Stain DI

The Tando decoration was painted with Stone Fresco Paint. The center of the cog was covered with printed tissue paper and then dry brushed with Decoart Raw Umber Fluid Acrylic paint before being coated with Decoart Matt Varnish.

The wings were covered with One-step crackle glaze and when dry were coated with Raw Umber antiquing cream

The heart Mini was covered in Stone Fresco paint and had strips of printed tissue paper stuck onto it with Matte medum. I added a chit chat sticker that had been edged with Walnut Stain DI. The edge of the heart was dry brushed with Decoart Raw Umber fluid acrylic paint and then I covered the whole thing with a thick coat of Glossy Accents glue

A few clock gears were added to the heart

A piece of twine was added so the heart could be hung up

And there is my Steampunk inspired heart hanger...Hope you like it!
