Good evening all, hope you've all had a good weekend despite the weather. We woke up to snow on Saturday but thankfully it did not last long! a really cold wind today and a frosty night forecast tonight. I was going to share another wall hanging with you tonight but I have changed my mind and am going to share a sneaky peek at one of my card samples for Imagination Craft's next show on Create & Craft tv on the 18th April. This is made with a very pretty stencil called 'Tweet' and of course one of my favourite Imagination products, the fabulous Sparkle Medium.
Make a base card from white card and cover the front completely with a piece of patterned card called 'summer script- lilac. Next matt a piece of white card onto the lilac,leaving a small border of the lilac showing.
Take a piece of the 'summer script' apple patterned card and lay the 'tweet' stencil onto it. Using the lavender, gold shine and forest green Sparkle Mediums, spread them over the design on the stencil using a metal spatula, cover everything but the birds and the heart, which can be masked off with masking tape. Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry. Apologies for the difference in colour on the photos, not sure why the colours look different, but the first photo shows the true colours.
When dry, put the stencil back into position on the card and spread the green and the gold Sparkle Mediums over the heart and the two birds. Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry. .
Punch the top left and bottom right corners using the corner punch. Glue this card to the base card. Punch out two small hearts from some spare patterned card and glue above the heads of the two birds.
Die-cut the flowers from Imagination Craft's pink patterned card, using the Spellbinders flower die and glue to the centre bottom of the base card. Add a flat backed pearl to the flower centre.
Well that's it finished folks, I do hope you like it. These patterned cards make lovely backgrounds for your cards and they save a great deal of time too! If you don't feel confident making your own backgrounds these are just the thing to help you and they give a very professional finish to your cards.
That's all from me tonight my friends. Thank you again for taking the time to vist my blog and I do hope you will pop back again in a few days, when I will have another sneaky peek lol! Have a good week and take care of yourselves.
Love and Rainbows,
Crafty Hugs, Jennifer xx
