Karan: Tin Type!

Hello scrappy friends, Karan here for my first time hosting the Quick Quotes blog!

Hope you are enjoying your Monday so far! I am so excited to share with you my first project as a Design Team Member for Quick Quotes. I loved the look of Tin Type online, and when my Design Team Box arrived, I couldn't wait to dig in.

When I saw the Chipboard Laser Diecut Painters Tray in the DT Box, all the lovely inks and the Tin Type line in real life, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, I wanted to incorporate some ink blending on my first DT Project.

Blending Techniques: To begin, I used three colours of Powder Puff Inks on this project by blending them together with each colour. Mango Mai Tai, the new Baja Blue (love this colour) and Mocha Mama I heat set it to dry. Once it was dry, I used a Hero Arts script stamp, and Mocha Mama and stamped over the entire Painters Tray. I then heat set it to dry again, (I didnt want to take any chances that I might touch it accidentally and smear the ink).

Cracked Glass Technique: I covered the Gears with the same colours of ink I used on the painters tray. I then heat set them to dry, and covered each gear with Versa Mark, then coated them with UTEE, and heat set. I repeated this step three times on each gear until I achieved the look I wanted (clear like glass) I then let these cool. Once they were cool, I bent each Gear and cracked the UTEE.

The "I will always love you" is from the Itty Bitty Velum Quotes, I cut it down to size to fit the Chipboard Frame! and then I popped it using foam adhesive. Actually, all the frames on this project are popped as are the photos.
