Ornate Blossoms


I am guest blogger over at Emerald Creek Dares blog today for ANYTHING GOES!  EEK...I love Anything Goes!  Thanks for popping by and checking out my Fallen Blossom Tag.

I used the Ornate Frame die and coated it with Burnt Copper Embossing Powder.  Then I coloured over it with vintage photo distress crayon to fill in any gaps.  To get the tag ready I used gesso over the whole tag.


Once dry I used picked raspberry, twisted citron and vintage photo.  The gesso helps the distress crayons to spread.  Layer the  argyle stencil and a baby wipe.


Rub off the distress crayon through the stencil, edge with ground espresso then get ready to stamp.


I stamped with Archival Jet Black.  Then I stamped the small blossoms onto watercolor paper added a little picked raspberry, spreading it with the baby wipe.


I used the sentiment from Fallen blossom to stamp my ribbon.  Inking with distress paints spun sugar and picked raspberry distress paint. 


The burnt copper ornate frame is perfect.


The small blossoms are popped up and coated in glossy accents.


I love the effect on the background!  Distress Crayons are the best!



 I used picked raspberry and twisted citron distress crayons on the Fearless charm.  Then attached with with the tiny attacher and some jute.


I tucked a tattered pinecone tea rose on the top.  The stamped ribbon is a fun way to add sentiments.


A pretty spring Ornate Blossom tag

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
