Tando's Technique Thursday....

Joanne and I have been using Viva's Terra with our white chipboard pieces for our Tando challenge today.

Viva's Terra is like a thick coloured paste which drys like paint but with a grit like texture, almost like fine pebble dash. Once again, the white board hasn't shown any signs of seperating or warping under the use of such thick and wet paste, it has also maintained the true colour of the paste.

This time I've chosen the shaped arch to play with:-

The arch was painted with the Terra and then left to dry. Once dry I then rubbed distress stickles onto the corners and along the edges, I then stamped a paperartsy stamp with black ink and then a gold clock charm was added. The edges were hi-lighted with gold dauber. The piece was then adhered to a brown piece of card which had been edged with utee. The background paper on the card is from seven gypsies, text paper was adhered to grungepaper and butterflies stamped and then cut out, these were adhered to the card using silicone gel.

All the white board shapes are now available to buy from Bubbly Funk.

Pop on over to the Tando Creative blog and see what Joanne has created - it gorgeous!!

Don't forget there's another Tando Creative piece on Tuesday...xx
