Beautiful Butterfly

Hi there Fellow Crafters, Friends and Visitors,

Jennifer here again, hope everyone is happy and has had a good weekend.  Today I am showcasing a sneaky peek that I have made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts for their show on QVC on September the 11th at 5pm.

The back and the front of the Mdf board was painted with cream mdf paint.   A coating of Servage was then applied and the chosen napkin layed on top.   A second coat of Servage was applied on top of the napkin to act as a varnish and it was then left to dry.

Cut out some leaves from a second identical napkin and glue them onto some white card, coat with Servage and leave to dry.

When dry, cut out and 3d them onto the Mdf board using silicone glue.

Add a ribbon hanger and cover ends with blue gemstones.   Die cut border, birdhouse, flowers and open leaf stem.   Paint birdhouse, border and leaves with blue mica powders mixed with water.

Coat the open leaf stem with Versamark pad and heat emboss using gold embossing powder and pink glitter.   Die cut two buttons and paint with mica powders.

Stamp the butterfly and text onto white card using a Versamark pad and heat emboss using gold embossing powder.  Colour with blue mica powder mixed with water.

Decorate the back and front of the Mdf hanging with these embellishments.   There you have it, one butterfly hanging.

Have a good week everyone and don't forget to watch QVC on the 11th at 5pm.   Until next time.
