T is for texture - always!
This postcard was easy, one side is just a selection of Golden pastes and mediums - crackle paste, fibre paste, moulding paste, garnet gel, glass ball gel, a gel with small gold mica flakes in it. I inscribed the word 'texture' into the moulding paste, waited for it all to dry, then added a coat of azo nickle gold fluid acrylic paint, and rubbed it around with a baby wipe to thin it out, spread it round, and remove brush marks.
The second side involved metal tape. I love this stuff - made from aluminium in various widths, with a sticky back. It's made for builders to use on pipes and roofs, I think.
I stuck several pieces of tape onto the card, about 3 layers in all. I created some 'rivet' marks on the left, just poking it with a pencil, and wrote the title of the page in the bottom left corenr. I ran the whole thing through the Wizard embossing machine, using a Tim Holtz embossing folder, the dabbed it all over with Stream alcohol ink (Ranger brand).
