Hi there Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Today began quite bright, sunny and warm but by lunchtime that had changed to dull, damp deary lol! but quite warm! at least we do not have 8 inches of snow as they have in some parts of America ! such low temperatures, makes me shiver just thinking about it lol! Hope my American friends are keeping safe and warm indoors.
Brilliant shows on Hochanda T.V. of Imagination Craft's fabulous products, well done again Lisa and Kerri-Ann, you are amazing. One more show to go this evening at 7pm.
My card tonight has not yet been shown on the shows so I thought I would share it with you now. I have used five of the new Starlight paint colours on this card, along with the gorgeous Topaz from another show.
This card is made using a 7" square white base card. Matt a square of black shiny card onto the base card, leaving a half inch border of the white showing.
Take a slightly smaller square of white card and using the daisies A5 embossing folder, emboss the daisies onto it. As this folder is an A5 size and the card much bigger, you will need to put the card into the folder twice to cover the whole square, just remember to match up the design when putting it into the folder for the second time.
Colour the card with the Starlight paints and then matt onto the black shiny card.
Lay the 'Mushroom Fairy' stencil onto a piece of white card, securing with masking tape, so the stencil does not move. Dab the Starlight colours through the design, using a stencil brushes. (as you dab the paint, the beautiful mica comes to the surface, giving a lovely sheen.) Remove the stencil and tape. You will need to wash your stencil and brushes quite soon as the paint will dry on them and is difficult to remove, especially the brushes! or you could just steep them in water, until you have more time.
Die-cut the fairy design, using the Spellbinder's scalloped oval die. Glue this to the embossed card, I used Magi-Bond glue to do this, as I find it sticks really well to the painted surface.
Glue a bow in the top left corner.
Colour some white card with the Starlights and dry emboss using the folder, then die-cut a flower from this card and glue to the right of the oval. Die-cut 2 leaves from card coloured with the Misty Green Starlight paint and glue to the flower.
Well that's all for now my friends, I will be back very soon with more creations, so catch you all then. Please don't forget to tune in to Hochanda this evening at 7pm. to see lots more demonstrations from Lisa and Kerri-Ann.
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
