Applied sand texture paste to the grey board.
I used a combination of paints to achieve a rust effect.
Sprinkled infusions onto the silk and spritzed with water. Waited for the magic to happen. Advantage of silk is that it looks the same on the back as on the front. I applied matt medium by dabbing it on with a brush so as not to move the colours.
Also did the same with some Kraft card. Using the same infusions as the silk but the effect is totally different.
Die cut the silk, Kraft card and waxed paper.
Arranged cogs on the background then matt medium to glue them in place.
Embellished with some die cut screws and cogs which had already been 'rusted' with rusting powder.
Finally stamped onto card then tried to make it a little bit rusty!
