Cut and make the large tag shaped card from black card – approx. 20 X 10.5cm.
Cut a tag from stamping card to layer onto the card leaving a small border of the black card base showing. Spritz with coloured inks and edge with silver pen.
Overstamp the background with floral and the decorative heart stamps.
Stamp the panels onto acetate with StazOn ink and cut out. Colour some areas on the back with acrylic paints – leaving some sections clear.
Add a layer of double sided sticky sheet to the back of the acetate (just the main shape – omit the little fiddly bits). I drew around the acetate onto the carrier sheet, then cut it out before sticking to the acetate. Pour glitter onto the tacky surface and press down/rub in well. Brush off excess.
Stick to background mat with double sided tape – hiding it under opaque painted sections.
Stamp the flower onto glitter card and cut out. Add ribbon and stick down the flower.
Glue the topper to the card with foam pads for added dimension. Finish with PVA pearls.
Good afternoon. Today I am sharing one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda with the Mackintosh stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque. Quite ‘clean and simple’ for me – but there is a bit of decoupage in there x.
Spectrum Aqua watercolour pens (gold, olive green and pale pink)
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen (clear overlay)
PVA pearls (silver)
How to make it:
Stamp the border approx. 8.5cm up from the card edge and emboss with silver powder. Cut along the top edge to create the card back with decorative header. The piece will measure approx. 20.5cm across and 12.5cm high.
Trim the remaining card to make the card front – approx. 20.5cm wide and 8.5cm high. Allow extra card at the top edge to score a fold for gluing to the card back to make up the card.
Stamp and emboss the heart and flowers for decoupage onto stamping card and cut out. After working out the placement of the heart onto the card front, stamp and emboss the floral sprig onto the card front. Colour all the images with Aqua Markers and Sparkle Pen.
Glue down the elements to the card front using 3D glue gel or foam pads for added dimension. Finish with a few PVA pearls.
Good afternoon. Lesley Wharton will be back on Hochanda tomorrow (Friday 23rd June) celebrating the 4 seasons with more lovely stamps and stencils from Chocolate Baroque. Freeview Channel 85 – 3 and 7pm (or watch live or on rewind via the website – www.hochanda.com).
Good morning. This was one of my samples for the recent shows on Hochanda with Lesley Wharton. It is a quick and easy make.
I used a technique demonstrated on one of Lesley’s shows recently. I inked up a 4 inch round gelli printing plated with Distress Ink and then lifted off some of the ink using the Big Bold Background Leafy Trails stamp, then transferred the image to stamping card. I overstamped with the butterfly and swirl from Patchwork Butterfly set using Versafine. Finally I added a little colour with a gold sparkle pen and edged the topper with black marker to frame.
