Gerbera Wall Plaque.

Good evening Peeps,

Well it's time again for me to share another of my creations with you all.  The reason I say 'creation' is, tonight I am not sharing a card with you, but a hanging wall plaque.   I tried to keep the background  fairly light, so your eyes are drawn to the gerberas.    This was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts for their show on Create and Craft t.v. in October 2014.   I have used their gorgeous Gerbera stencil, Chalkies and of course the fabulous Jade Sparkle Medium.

                                                       Below is the finished wall plaque.

      
Take two back boards from two MDF Charm kits and paint one side of each of the boards using the Chalk White MDF paint.      One will be the front and the other the back. Next paint the backing board with the Agean and Cornflower Chalkies.     Paint the front board the same as the back. 

Stamp the text randomly over the front board.   Do the same with the sequin wastes dabbing the ink through the sequin waste  and by using the  Lavender distress ink and stamping the bottle top onto  the plaque.

  
Lay the gerbera stencil on the front board and dab the evergreen bough through the stencil design, using some cut n' dry foam.   Remove the stencil and leave to dry.

When dry, lay the stencil onto the front board again, but slightly further to the right of the distress ink image.   Spread the beautiful Jade Sparkle Medium over the stencil using the metal spatula.   Remove stencil and leave the image to dry.   Colour around the edges of the board with the evergreen bough distress ink.

Fix some ribbon across the bottom of the board, adding a piece of twine wrapped around the front board and glue in place on the reverse of the front board.

 
Add a ribbon bow to the bottom left.   Using a' Cropodile,'  punch two holes in the top of each board, then glue the unpainted sides together with a strong glue. 



Last of all, thread a piece of twine through the holes to act as a hanger.   Well that's it finished, I hope you like it.   I will be back in three days time, so I will see you then.   Take care of yourselves and I hope you all have a lovely Easter, not sure what the weather will be like lol!   I do hope we see some sunshine as the gardens are in bad need of attention!   See you all soon.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                   Big Hugs    Jennifer xx.
