Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We have had yet another sunny day here today but by teatime , the temperature had dropped. I think we will have another thick white frost in the morning again. I really don't mind the frost in the evening because it is usually followed by a bright sunny day.
Tonight I have another sneaky peek to share with you, which I have made for Imagination Craft's next show on the Hochanda T.V. Channel on Tuesday 7th Feb. at 8pm. and again on Wednesday 8th Feb. at 9am. 12noon. 4pm 7pm. hope you can tune in.
Matt a square of black shiny card onto a 7" square white base card. Using a slightly smaller piece of white card. lay the Retro squares stencil onto it and add the distress inks through the design, using a piece of cut 'n' dry foam. I used Victorian velvet,scattered straw, peeled paint, Forest moss and Stormy sky inks. Remove the stencil.
When the inks are dry, replace the stencil in the correct position and take the Antique rose Sparkle Medium and, using your finger, rub the medium through the stencil, rubbing the medium to the edges of the stencil. This flattens the glitter in the medium, making it look flatter (ie., no pieces of glitter on the surface, just a beautiful shine) this technique is know as' foiling' and gives a beautiful effect. The photo below gives you some idea of the sheen, particularly when the light catches it.
Matt this onto the black matt when dry.
Roughly cut around each butterfly from the rice paper and using decoupage glue, fix them onto some white card. When dry, cut them out and fix to the base card using silicone glue.
Cut out a second green/black butterfly in the same manner from a second piece of rice paper and fix on top of the first butterfly, using silicone glue. Add small amounts of Alchemy waxes to the wings of the butterflies.
Cut out the three small butterflies in the same way and glue to the base card. This card is now finished, I love these rice paper butterflies, they're so pretty, hope you like it too. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, much appreciated.
I will be back again soon with another sneaky peek, so catch you all then. Enjoy your Tuesday.
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
