Have Wings - Will Fly. With Imagination Crafts.
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend
It was just the norm at ours only with flowers loll!
I had to cook the Sunday lunch for everyone else in between crafting with grandchildren and trying to finish the cards for class, nothing new there then.
Now enough complaining let's move on with our class for this week and we have some very nice new stamps to us from Imagination Crafts.
They are really nice to work with and lend themselves perfectly to a bit of decoupage, this makes them very versatile indeed.
I have stamped the image in Clear Ink and Embossed with White Powder onto black cardstock.
The Dragonflies have been painted with some Mica Powders mixed with a tiny amount of water.
The background is white card which I painted with Black Gesso then once dry embossed in my Brick wall folder, slightly sanded and Silver Gilding Wax applied.
I chose three colours of my Distress inks and put them onto a piece of white card to see how they would look together, these are the colours I used.
Peacock Feathers, Festive Berries and Mustard Seed.
Then cut away the sections that I didn't want. I did use my craft knife for the middle layer.
The yellow background is just white card coloured with Mustard Seed and my new best blending tool then dried and embossed with the Script folder.
Loving this Dragonfly set, they make great individual embellishments once cut out away from the background. They would look fabulous on acetate and glittered.
Think that's just about it for now except you might want to bring your heat tool and a flat paint brush to paint the black gesso with.
Ok. See you soon x. Sheilagh x
