Fleur-de-lis

Hello everyone, Jennifer here again,

Hope you are all having a good week despite the dull, dreary weather.   I'm getting quite a bit of fabby crafting time just now as I cannot do any gardening - too wet !!   whoopee !  just love to get in my craft room lols.

Well today's little offering is not actually a card.   It is one of Imagination Craft's MDF Charm kits, which I love working with as you can let your imagination  (excuse the pun lols !) run wild and do just what you fancy, there are no set rules to what you can do!




I have used the front frame only from the set (the other parts can be used for another project, so you get two items for the price of one !)  which can't be bad lols.   I covered this with red paper and rubbed some Forest Moss Distress Ink around the edges.

I then spread Silver Gilt' Sparkle Medium onto it through the Fleur-de-lis  Stencil.   A piece of green striped paper was put behind the aperture and the MDF board was glued to a piece of dark green card.

I added the silver peel-off border around the edges and two smaller pieces of gold peel-offs on the striped paper.   I also added a gold Merry Christmas to the bottom right corner.   Peel-offs are not something I use very often but in this case they are perfect for the job in hand.

The dove I covered with patterned paper and rubbed distress ink on the edges, then covered with Magi-Glaze.

The bauble was covered with mica powders.   On the centre of the bauble I placed part of the Fleur-de-lis stencil and spread the sparkle medium over it.  When dry, I covered it with Magi-Glaze.   I then decorated it with metal nail heads and 
gold peel-offs.

A gold cord and ribbon were attached to the bauble.   The dove and the bauble were then glued to the frame, the bauble left free to swing, attached only, at the top.   Well that's it folks, hope you like it.  You could add a ribbon hanger and have it as a Christmas decoration !

Until next time, happy crafting.
Hugs
