Hi there, hope you've all had a good day, the weather here has been quite good I'm pleased to say, just an odd shower or two this morning, then it dried up. Hubby and I were taken out to lunch today by a family relative we haven't see for some time. So nice to see her and her daughter and out came the photo albums, so many memories to talk about and we had a lovely meal. Had no meal to cook tonight for a change lol!
As promised here is the full card which has been made for Imagination Craft's next shows on the Hochanda T.V. channel on the 5th. & 6th. July 2016. My samples hopefully should have reached Sue & Harvey today, ready for the show. For this card I have used their beautiful new 'Bearing Gifts' Christmas stencil, yes it's only Summer I hear you all say but us crafters like to get started early on our Christmas makes lol!
Using a ready creased ivory card, fold it down the centre making a 7"x7" base card. Using the small flourish stamp from the Cottage Border Decoupage Stamp Set, stamp it around the outside edges of the card, using a black ink pad.
Colour the card edges with the Victorian Velvet and Black Soot Distress inks, using a blending tool. Onto this matt a smaller square of black satin card, leaving a half inch border of the base card showing.
Take a smaller square of white card approximately five and three quarter inches square and roughly brush the Cyclamen and Rich Gold Starlight paints across the card. If you would like a more blended finish, you could spread the paints across the card using a brayer.
When this is dry, lay the 'Bearing Gifts' stencil on top and spread the Black Stars Sparkle Medium over the design, using the metal spatula.
Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.
When dry, matt this image onto the base card, I find the Imagination Magi-bond glue works really well, making a good bond to the base card, double sided tape does lift up a little if you accidentally get some paint on the back of the card, not sure why but the glue works best I find.
Enjoy the rest of your evening and I will be back again with another creation tomorrow. I do hope you will pop back and thanks ever so much for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate your visits and the lovely comments you leave me. See you tomorrow.
Love and rainbows,
Happy Crafting, Hugs Jennifer xx
