Well good morning Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Not such a good morning in my neck of the woods, windy and raining ! Today I thought I would give you a 'sneaky peek' at one of the sample cards I have made for Imagination Craft's shows on Create and Craft television, which are due to be televised tomorrow night at 9pm and again on Friday morning at 9am.
Hope you like it. This card is made using their fabulous Silkies - Tropical Set. These are beautiful paints which have a lovely sheen to them and they come in some really lovely colours. Ok off we go, let's get started.
Begin by making a base card from gray card, A4 folded in half portrait style. Matt some teal card onto this leaving a border of gray showing.
Take a piece of white card and colour using the silkies. When dry, stamp a border stamp down each side of the coloured card, using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Trim this down and fix to the base card.
Take the patterned panel card and lay the stencil on it and spread the sparkle mediums over the design, lavender at the top of the design, then green in the middle section and lastly the lovely antique rose at the bottom. The colours will merge but don't worry about this as doing it this way, you do not get any harsh lines between the individual colours. Carefully remove stencil and you will get that 'wow' effect ! It looks so good without a great deal of effort! Leave image to dry.
When the image is dry, fix this panel between the stamped lines of the border stamp. (This border stamp was from a set by Imagination Craft's, but I'm not sure it is still available but you could use any border stamp you may have in your crafty stash).
Cut out two zig-zags from white card using the Memory Box die and a die-cutting machine. Colour with the antique rose sparkle medium. Glue one to the left and the other to the right-hand side of the card.
Last but not least, add a ribbon bow near the bottom of the leaf stem. Well that's it Friends. Don't forget to tune into the two shows, sounds as though they are going to be very interesting. Sue will be showing us some great techniques and some fabby products. Thank you all for stopping by, love you all !
See you all soon. Until then, look after yourselves.
Love and rainbows,
Big Hugs Jennifer xx
