Through the Arch Window.

Good Morning Crafters

Happy Independence Day to all our American Followers!

Another very detailed tutorial from Lindsay today, you may need to grab a cup of tea as this is a photo heavy tutorial which we hope you will like.

Window Stencil
Sparkle Medium
Gold and Silver Glossy Card

 First I took a piece of gold card, placed the flourish stencil on it and sponged acrylic paint through the stencil.

When the paint dried I then laid the window stencil over the top of the painted area and used a palette knife to spread on antique bronze glitter medium.

Then I took a piece of silver card and used the window stencil and a palette knife to spread on black stars glitter medium. 

When it was dry I cut out the bird and the leafy flourishes from the edges of the silver and black image. 

 I then layered the pieces on  to the matching areas of the stencilled image on the gold card and then matt and layered the whole thing on white and gold card.

Finally I stuck the image to a shaped card blank and then tied some satin in to a bow leaving long tails of ribbon, stuck the bow in place and then turning the ribbon and sticking the underside of it to the card I used the ribbon to frame the image.
