Tando Technique Thursday...

and today Joanne and I are putting the white board thro' its paces with viva Ferro paste...

Here's my piece:-


the white board wavy edged arch was painted with acryllic paint and then the ferro plastered at the bottom and along one side, whilst still wet a criss cross stamp was pushed into the paste. (if you try this technique spritz your stamp - it will add release from the paste and also make the stamp alot easier to clean!) Once dry, gold and black daubers were added and when wiped off.....the car, arrows and phrase are all by T!m Holtz and the key was added.....

The board was gorgeous to work with and as its white gives such perfect colour results.

Pop on over to the Tando creative blog and see what Joanne has created...its gorgeous!

On a personal note just wanted to say a big thank you for the support my lovely friends have given me in relation to Josh. He was re-admitted to hospital on Tuesday. xx

See you tomorrow with another SCD challenge...
