Hello again! Second post of the day and its only 8 am! Imagination-crafts are starting their new challenge today and you can check out all the inspiration from the other DT members here. Before I show you my piece just wanted to let you know about the design-team-call that went out yesterday - why not have a go? Its a great DT to be part of!!! I'll certainly be re-applying myself!
Here's what I made for the post today. A plaque and card both using the stamp set called Christmas holly that you can get here - and the stencil called holly swirls that you can get here.
So first of all the MDF plaque is part of a set that you can buy from Imagination Crafts (here) - to make this I first gesso-ed the frame then covered it with metallic gold ink from an ink pad before applying the stencil - I mixed some green acrylic paint with sparkle medium and applied this through the mask. once dry I went over the berries in red acrylic paint. The christmas tree came as part of the set and I painted it with green acrylic paint and when dry added the stamped image using versa and heat set using gold wow powder.
The card was made using mica powders from Imagination Crafts. I used versa through the mask then the powders and again added the red this time using a promarker. Then I stamped the image on another piece of card using versa and dusted with mica powders. I stamped the holly tree image using memento ink and then coloured in promarkers and added the gems, fussy cut and added to the image.
I hope you like my 'set'. And that you will join us in the challenge - please remember that only those entries using IC products will qualify for the chance of the prize of £40 to spend in store!
