The first step was to cut the backing paper from the collection to 19.3 cm squared on my Cutterpillar Pro
, I then used some of the Distress ink on a Dauber
to go around the edge of this. I then cut a piece of the Silver Mirror card to 19.8 cm squared and fasten the decorative paper to the mirror card with a Create and Craft glue pen
, followed by glueing down the mirror card to the card blank with Collall All Purpose Glue
. The next step was to cut a piece of the Bristol Watercolour card to 14 cm squared on the Cutterpillar Pro. I used the stencil from the papercraft collection to create the border design with the Distress Ink and Dauber and put this aside to dry. Using the offcut of the Bristol card I stamped the floral display in the Tonic Tim Holtz Stamping Platform
, you can read more about the Stamping Platform in this post
. I used the Versa Fine Ink Pad and gave it two applications of the ink to ensure the image was well defined.
To colour this in, I used my Clean Color Real Brush Markers which are water-based and a Dreamees Water Brush
filled with water rather than blending fluid. The colouring was probably the longest part of the project.
Once I had completed the colouring I used the Stickles Crystals to dot around the image and left this to dry whilst I had my lunch.
