Instructions

It’s a small cute round easel card created with the decorative dies, enchanted Mum flowers and fluttering butterfly. Die cut 2 decorative round pieces from a white card using the  Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die. Take a smaller circle size and die cut 2 pieces from the butterfly pattern paper collection. Distress the edges and then stick it to the base. For the easel, score at the middle and then fold the circle into half which will form the easel base. For the pattern paper cut it into half, distress the edge and then stick it to the easel base. For the Easel card take a further smaller die from the circle basic small die and die cut a pattern paper. For the next layer die cut a piece from the butterfly decorative circle die using a white card stock and then stick it to the middle of the pattern paper. Take the smallest circle die and die cut it from a black card stock. Die cut the word Thank you from silver card stock and stick it to the center. As a decorative insert die cut a piece from the circle decorate die from the Butterfly collection and then tuck it in at the top.For the flowers stamp and die cut several pieces of the enchanted Mum collection from a white card stock and plum archival ink. This time instead of spraying with water I have sprayed with some spray alcohol ink which stained the flowers yellow. Later heat dry them after shaping. Once the flowers are dried added more shades of dried marigold and picked raspberry. Heat set them again and at the end dabbed some glossy accents on the petals tip and sprinkle some crystal clear. For the leaves it is shaded using library green and leaf green archival ink and also sprinkled with crystal clear and heat set it after shaping the leaf ends.Stamp the butterfly image onto a white card stock using embossing ink and heat emboss with silver embossing powder and heat set it. Color the stamp and embossed image with zig brushes and then die cut using the co rodinating die.

Smile!

Hello friends, welcome to another post of mine where I am breaking some of my comfort zone , playing with some colors , wooden chips and foam flowers.

I am at Craftslane today with their amazing collection of Wooden bases , chips and some paints which has been newly introduced.

I have taken a wooden round placement mat and covered with white gesso. Later cover the base with some lace , corrugated sheet ,  and also stencil the background. Once all covered apply another quote of white gesso. Once all dried you can choose your paint and then start with the layers. For the flowers I have shaped them using a foam sheet and some stamens. The color palette I tried and kept it to Magenta , ruby and shades of pink. Used the Bird cage as the focal for the layout.After applying a coat of white gesso painted the cage white and also added the small birdie.








Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!
Until then Happy Crafting!
