Well, it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More! This time around our lovely hostess Mary has chosen the theme WINGS, so she wants to see something with wings. It can be birds, planes, fairies, insects or even a steampunk clock, as long as it includes wings.
Last July, when I wrote my very first post, I had added a soft glow to my photos. I really liked, I thought it made them feel romantic. My hubby didn't like the way it looked, so I stopped doing it. Recently I have really been swooning over the lovely photos my good friend SAMRA always has, so I have decided to add the glow again. After all, he's a dude, what does he know a bout romance! HAHA! Let me know what you think.
I had so much fun making my DecoArt card last week, I decided to try another one. I really enjoy working with the paints and other mediums, I am discovering so many new things with these wonderful DecoArt products. You will be seeing much more of them in the future as my stash gets bigger!
I used DecoArt Crafter's Acrylics Tropical Blue, Lavender and Americana Titanium White to make the background. I tried a new technique on a challenge from the lovely FAITH. You can find the tutorial on my Facebook Page HERE..
I applied a little DecoArt Medium - Crackle Paint here and there and then stamped some music notes for a little extra design.
The flowers were cut using Sizzix/Tim Holtz Tattered Florals. I covered them with DecoArt Medium - Crackle Paint and then used some watered down DecoArt paints to drip into the cracks. I also coloured the cheesecloth with DecoArt paints, Tropical Blue and Lavender.
The frame and flourishes were made using crafter's clay. I covered them with DecoArt Medium - Crackle Paint and stuck microbeads to it while the paint was still wet. I painted it with the DecoArt paints and then spritzed it with water so the paint would wash off the surface. A little dabbing with Titanium White paint to shabby it up.
The beads you see here are actually miniature ice cubes. I bought them from a doll house furniture supplier. I mixed them with microbeads and then used DecoArts Decou-Page Matte to attach them. Cool right! The butterflies are from Kaisercraft and the sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations.
I am entering the following wonderful challenges:
