Bird Cages

Good Morning Crafters

We hope you all have all had a good week so far.

Today I am sharing my tutorial with you all.

MDF Charms
Sparkle Medium
Bird Cages Stencil

Using white Gesso paint an 8 x 8 square canvas

Mix white Gesso with Royal Satin Silkies and paint over the canvas.

Using the leaves from the Bird Cages Stencil spread Sage Green Sparkle Medium just over the leaves.

Once the first of the leaves you have stencilled are dry place the stencil again and extend the branch across the top of the canvas.

Using the MDF charms paint with Silver Satin, Red Stain, Lavender Lace, Gold Brocade and Bronze Brocade. Using an Pigma Micron pen draw lines on the bird and an eye on each of them.

Using Black Stars stencil the birds from the Bird Cages stencil and draw the chain with Pigma Micron pen.
Sponge Royal Satin Silkies around the edges of the canvas.

Adhere the charms to the canvas with hot glue gun and add clear gems for butterfly trail and on the two bottom corners.

Good Morning Crafters

We hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

Today we would like to share Jan's tutorial for this month, this will be Jan's final tutorial.

We wish Jan the best of luck for the future and thank her for being a fabulous DT member.

Diamond Sparkle Medium
Santa on his Sleigh Stencil

Score a piece of A4 card to make a gate fold card. 

 Cut the bottom off so the inside measurement of the card is 6x6.
For the decorative side edges use a punch

On the inside of the card using Santa's sleigh stencil spread Diamond Sparkle Medium, put this to one side to dry, this will take up to an hour to dry.

Cut a piece of 6x6 acetate and repeat the above with the Santa's Sleigh stencil and Diamond Sparkle Medium

Using another piece of A4 card cut down to measure 6 inches wide and score as shown to make an easel card.
Then stick it over the sides and as closely over the image on the card as possible.

To finish off add a Ric Rac Ribbon down the sides to hide the double sided tape.
For the stopper make a bow with silky crush ribbon and add a gem to the centre of the bow.

Many thanks for visiting Today!

We are sharing the last tutorial by Nicky today.

We would like to thank Nicky for all her hard work and being part of the DT for the past 10 months.

Fuschia Decoupage Stamp Set
Mica Powders

Black card stock, ribbons and embellishments.

Take a piece of black card, punch 3 holes in the left hand side.
Using Versamark stamped the image onto the black card.

Choosing 2 of the mica powder colours, bronze and gold sprinkle over the stamped image.

Take a brush and dust the powder over the image ensuring that all the stamped image is covered then removed the excess.

Taking the Blue, Green and Gold mica powder, start painting the image, remember to use the lid as your palette, don't add water to the mica pots or you will contaminate the powder.

Using the clear mica powder, paint around the image.

Finally decorate your card, add ribbon to the 3 punched holes, flower, leaves and feather to make a small bouquet and a charm with pearl flat back gems.

Mica Powders - Brights
Summer Time Stencil

Make a base card from green card stock.

Remove the stencil.  

Brush strips of different coloured mica powders over the Versamark image.   
Brush away the excess powder.  

Take a piece of pink card and punch the four corners using the corner punch and fit the black card into the corners on the pink card.  

This is a close up of the mica image.  

Make three roses from some pink card, one large, one medium and one small. 

Cut a strip of green card and fix some narrow pink ribbon across it, securing on the reverse.
