Good morning Lovelies,
How are you this bright and sunny morning! Hope you are ready to tune in to Create & Craft TV, to see our lovely Sue from Imagination Craft's at 10am and 4pm this afternoon. Just thought I'd squeeze one more sample in before the show begins. Hope you like this one. Anyone who knows me, knows I love all things 'fairy' or 'pixie' lol! and these toadstools are no exception!
Begin by painting all the shelf parts with a festive berries distress ink pad. Next paint with crackle medium. When dry, paint with a layer of the limestone MDF paint. This will begin to crack as it dries. Colour with the mowed lawn and peacock feathers distress ink pads.
When dry add a small amount of the forest green Sparkle Medium to the frame. Cut out one toadstool from the red/gold paper and two from red card. Lay the leaf flourish border stencil over large and small toadstools and spread the gold shine Sparkle Medium over them , using the spatula. Remove the stencil and leave to dry.
Glue the red toadstools to the MDF toadstools, using Magi-bond glue. Die-cut two butterflies using the Memory Box die, colour with distress inks, then lay the daisy oval flower stencil over them and spread the gold shine Sparkle Medium over the flowers, onto the butterflies wings. Remove stencil and leave to dry.
Take a piece of navy card and emboss using the diamonds embossing folder. Glue this to the back of the frame and trim around the edges. Glue the butterflies in position.
Die-cut the two pixies using the Star gazing die from the Celtic die collection and cut away everything but the two pixies, Cover them with gold shine Sparkle Medium and leave to dry.
Glue them to the bottom right with silicone glue. That's it finished, all that remains to be done is to assemble your shelf, no glue needed, everything just slots together. Well I do hope you like it. I hope it gives you as much pleasure looking at it, as it gave me making it.
Don't forget to tune in to Create & Craft tomorrow. See you all again soon.
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
