Tando June Anything Goes

For Anything Goes week this month on ~{Tando}~ I've got a new item and a change of background! I made this Gift Label at the annual retreat I go to with my arty friends. 

As I was away from home, I didn't have all my supplies, but I did have DecoArt's Chalk Finish paint in white and some Fluid Acrylics in ~{Quinacridone Magenta}~ and ~{Cobalt Turquoise}~ so I blended those onto the base and the label. I used white and black pens for doodles (I did go a bit mad with the pens!).

As I was sat next to Di, I 'borrowed' her DecoArt misters. I started off with ~{Turquoise Shimmer}~, but thought it was too dark, so I sprayed over the top with ~{White Shimmer}~. I dabbed at it whilst damp to remove some of the white. Once this was dry, I added DecoArt Crystal Glass and something weird happened: It crackled very finely!! There must have been some sort of reaction in the combination of ingredients, but I loved the effect!

I put it over the bottle of wine I won in the raffle - we have 2 and raised money for both Action for ME and Cancer Research.

Hee hee - from the little thumbnail in my blog sidebar I was trying to work out why you'd have a photo of a bollard! Hope you enjoyed the wine and the retreat, the gift tag/hanger looks great!
