A Distress and Vintage Cameo Winged Hutch

This is probably right up there for my All-Time Favorites. I really, really, love how this technique turned out on Masonite from Retro Cafe Art Gallery.

I received a wonderful box of paints and mediums from DecoArt Media a few weeks ago. After watching the brilliant Andy Skinner's demo from CHA, I decided to give it a twist on Masonite instead of chipboard or mat board. 

The big difference here is that the Masonite does NOT absorb the paint to create the fantastic faux rust, BUT these colors are much the same as in Andy's demo

The edges of the pieces are brushed lightly with Inka Gold and Inka Gold-Copper as well as the Heart Key.

I've copied this cute vintage picture from my antique stash and found it was perfect for this Cameo frame inside the ATC Hutch Shrine - Adore. You can see a glimpse of the really cool stamped and painted interior here.

This is the outside with Cobalt Turquoise, some Paynes Grey and numbers stamped with Titan Buff. Black Archival Ink is used to stamp the script stamp last. I really love the distressed and vintage look here.

Here you can see the back of the Hutch that I stamped with Titan Buff and then used the glaze from Andy Skinner to "antique" it. 

This is the Hutch insides and back using the Quinacridone Gold, Black Archival Inks, and the glaze.

This shows the "before" Number Stamp side on the left, and the "after the glaze" on the right. Pretty amazing, Mr. Skinner!!!
The Stamps are all from The Artistic Stamper. Thank you again for those lovely beauties! Check out the links below.

These are all the different paints I used to create this. And in the little travel jar is the wonderful concoction of "GLAZE." 
So take the time to go see Andy Skinner's tutorials on YouTube and learn to make some really awesome Vintage keepsakes with Retro Cafe Art Gallery Masonite.
