Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Firstly, I would like to welcome my newest follower Lisa Baker to my blog. I do hope you enjoy your visits. Why don't you pop across to Lisa's blog to see her lovely creations.
I have one more sneaky peek up my sleeve lol! I did not get this one shown before Imagination Craft's shows today. I hope you managed to tune in to the programs, the shelves were so popular, they all sold out within forty minutes and the show had to be cut short ! I just knew they would fly off the shelves (pardon the pun lol! ) as they really are beautiful. Such lovely designs and just so different. OK. onto tonight's creation.
Paint all parts of the wall shelf with the limestone MDF paint . Colour with distress inks Walnut stain and seedless preserves, using a piece of cut n' dry foam. Lay the MDF cat onto a piece of brown card and draw around it with a pencil and cut the cat out. Put to one side for the moment.
Using the daisy oval stencil and the distress inks, add some flowers to the shelf. as below.
Emboss a piece of cream card using the Tattered Lace embossing folder. Rub some walnut stain distress ink lightly across the surface of the embossing. Cut out all the diamonds and glue the remaining lattice to the back of the shelf.
Add some brown card behind the scrolls on the bottom left and top right. Next glue some of the pearlised blue card to the top left and bottom right. Next glue a piece of blue card to the shelf back, fixing in position behind the lattice.
Make three flowers from some spare blue card by cutting out a circle and cutting a spiral round and round the circle. Then wind the spiral round and round until you come to the end of the spiral, then glue and hold in position until the glue is partly set. Glue these flowers to the top right corner.
Glue the brown cat shape you prepared earlier and onto the MDF cat with Magi-bond glue. Die-cut some flowers from white card using the Spellbinders die and colour them with Imagination Craft's gold mica powder and water. Glue these onto the cat, cutting the flowers to size to fit the cat shape.
Make another three flowers from blue card and glue them onto the centre of some of the gold flowers.
Tie a ribbon around the cat's neck. adding a small brass bell and tie in a bow. Punch out small brown circles and glue them to the lattice where they cross-over each other.
Lastly, click your shelf into the slots provided and click in the shelf supports and hey presto, your shelf is finished. Well that's all from me tonight, hope you enjoyed seeing everyone's samples. It always amazes me that we can all be given the same products to work with, yet we all come up with different ideas on how to decorate them. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. See you again in a few days.
Love and Rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
