That's Crafty! Challenge - Rustica

Hi everyone,

We have a new fortnightly theme over at That's Crafty! with the theme of: Rustica.

This is a really good one to enter and show us all your wonderful rust effects either with real rust powder or created by using paints, texture pastes etc.

Join in and you could win this fab prize to spend on some lovely goodies in the shop

For my tag I used one of the fab That's Crafty! greyboard embellishments with a mixture of Decoart pastes and paints for the rust effect.

Distress Oxides, Decoart pastes and paints, That's Crafty! greyboard embellishment and script stamp, Tim Holtz sentiment and art dolls.

Hope you like it

  1. Love how you have rusted the greyboard Donna with the illusion of heaviness of crust and weight. Although those fine ladies are hidden in the shadow of it all it certainly does not cast a shadow over them. Super Tag..
    Hugs Tracey xx

  2. This tag is just BRILLIANT! What a fantastic rust effect on the greyboard and the layering and textures are fantastic Donna! Happy weekend!

  3. What a fantastic rusty flower, Donna - I absolutely love this!

  4. A wonderful piece Donna! Love that rusting effect. You really succeeded with giving that a rusty iron look. With the vintage women, I think of back in the day when factories ruled the town's employment. They definitely put the workers in their shadow. Great technique.

  5. I so totally love it Donna, it is a masterpiece in rusting, and looks just as if you picked it up, from a pile of ancient rusty elements !! So gorgeous, and really looks fantastic on the background you created for it ,the two vintage galls feels right at home there !!
    Big hugs and thank you ,
