Painted up heavy metal style

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! This week, we all can go crazy with our favorite paint technique at Simon Says Stamp and Show! I chose the painting technique from Andy Skinner. A while back, I did his online workshop and I'm totally impressed by it and what I've learned. The only problem is that I'm very impatient and would like to see results immediately. And you can't rush this technique. Not if you want the best results. Because I'm so impatient, I chose a small area to tackle, like this tag, so I still can have quick results! Ha, I found a loophole! LOL







Out of respect for Andy Skinner and his amazing online workshops, I can't show you how it did this. But I will tell you the trick to creating the old metal effect is using a tiny bit of paint on your brush. Shhhh, you didn't hear this from me! If you want to know more about this technique, Andy gives this online workshop regularly. He has several different ones. I'm so going to do more! Love it!



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
