Industrial Grunge On A Saturday

I’ve been getting into industrial grunge with Tando Creative alterables. Elaine has lots of fabulous Alterable items in Quixotic Paperie that are great fun to play with!

I love getting a little messy with paints so this is the perfect make for me with painted jute and grunged foil!

Easy to do, cover some card with kitchen foil and emboss with an embossing folder through your die-cutting machine. 

Fun bit, add black paint! Messy!

Wipe off most of the paint to give the grunged look.

You can do anything you like with the Tando Creative items, paint them, cover them with papers all sorts of things. I’ve added texture with Golden Molding paste on mine and then painted it with acrylic paints.

Finishing by adding a dollop of red paint and Glossy Accents to the two top hearts.

If you are into birdhouses then check out the Tando Creative ones – so cute! 

Enjoy playing!

    Good Sunday Morning Kim, this is right up my alley. Love these Tando Creatives, going to wander over to see what they have.
    That foil painted is fun, you did a great job here. A nice masculine piece for those guys that you need something to make.
    Happy Creating, Lesley
