Today we have a beautiful tutorial by Avril

Imagination Crafts Products Used
Clematis Decoupage Stamp Set

Stamp the clematis onto tissue paper with Memento Black Ink

Colour the clematis with alcohol ink pens, Avril has used Promarkers, on the tissue paper.

Closely cut out the clematis, ready to transfer onto the candle

Cover the image with wax paper (baking paper), wedge the candle between wads of kitchen roll to keep wax paper and image secure. Use heat gun to adhere image to candle.

To finish off adhere a butterfly.

A beautiful idea and will make a fabulous gift.

Enjoy your weekend and we hope you have enjoyed the tutorial.

Up, up and away

Good Morning Crafters

Today it is my turn to post my tutorial using Imagination Craft Products which can be found on their Website

I cut a piece of pearlescent card down to 15 x 15 cm and using Distress Ink Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage to create the sky and hills.

Using Sparkle Medium in Forest Green, Gunmetal, Soft Purple, Black Stars and Cinnamon.
I stencilled these over the Ballooning stencil and put to one side to dry.

This is the scene which has now dried.

Using Spellbinder Grande Square I cut out a frame using wood grain card.

I then distressed the frame with Vintage Photo which highlights the wood grain card.

Positioned the frame over the scene I created.

To finish off I matted and layered with foam pads for dimension onto a 7 x 7 square cream card and added Tim Holtz Chit Chat "Summer Holiday"

I hope you have enjoyed my Tutorial.
