The Crafter's Workshop Has Metal Dies????

Yes, they do.
The have lots of designs and you can check them out HERE and HERE.

These are the four that I have.

TCW1020 4x6 Dots
TCW1015 4x6 Circles
TCW1025 6x4 Horizontal Chevron
TCW1011 4x6 Solace 
This week I will be showing you what I created with each die.

Today I will be using TCW1020 Dots.
These are the supplies I used: 

Manila Tag
White Cardstock
Golden Gesso
Golden Gel Medium
Deli Paper
I used a manila tag with a alpha background.
I used a die on a piece of white cardstock.
I used the cardstock and gesso to add the dots to the background.
Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

To add more texture to the tag, I mixed together Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Gesso.
I used a palette knife and spread it on the tab plus on a piece of deli paper.
Once both were dry I added White Tattered Angels Mixed Media Paint.
In a ventilated area, I dried the tag and deli paper with a heat gun but let the heat bubble the paint. 

After that step, I so engrossed with the tag I didn't take any pictures.
So I will try to give you a brief summer.

I added more Distress Paints, Tattered Angels Mixed Media Paint in Copper.
Ripped the deli paper and the Die paper to add more texture to the tag.
Looks real rusty!

Then I found a small tag and added paint to that.
On a piece of cardstock stamped the VivaLasVegaStamp and added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to it.

Then I put it all together to look like this!

I've never been able to make things look sort of rusty.
I think I'm on a roll with it.
So far I'm having fun with these dies.
Go check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
