Wedding Wall Hanger

Good Morning Crafters

How has your weekend been, a busy one here, we hope you all had a good weekend.

Today we are sharing a beautiful tutorial by Carol.
We hope you like what she has created and inspires you to have a go.

Imagination Crafts products needed:

Other Items:
Black Gesso

Firstly trim your patterned card so it leaves a border when attached to the MDF. 
MDF can them be coated with black gesso.

Attach stencil to the patterned card.

Sparkle medium was then applied with a spatula.

Once happy with the coverage remove stencil and leave to dry.

Once dry attach a loop of ribbon to the front of the MDF then attached the patterned card with wet glue. A bow and some pearls finished the wall hanger off.
