Gerberas with Love

Good Morning Crafters

Just to remind you that Sue and Harvey are at the SECC in Glasgow this weekend. 
If you are going don't forget to stop by and say hello!

We have another tutorial today from Jennifer.

Diamond and Lavender Sparkle Medium
Cornflower, Aegean and Soft Sage Chalkies
Tile Kasbah and Gerbera Stencils
With Love stamp from the Rose Decoupage stamp set
Paint brush

Make a base card from white card stock.  
 Lay the gerbera stencil on top with the flowers towards the right of the base card.   
Spread the diamond sparkle medium over the design.   
Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.  
Lay the tile stencil on top of the card and mask off all but the border down the left hand edge.   
Spread the diamond sparkle medium over the border,
adding a little lavender sparkle medium on top.   
Remove stencil and leave to dry.

Fix a piece of ribbon down the card, towards the border strip.   
Colour the gerbera with the chalkies and add a little lavender sparkle medium to the petals.

Using the Spellbinder's die, cut out and emboss the label.   
Stamp 'with love' using the distress ink, onto the centre of the label.  
Colour with distress ink and the chalkies.   
Gently rub a small amount of the lavender sparkle medium over the label and leave to dry.

Fix the label to the ribbon with sticky foam pads and add a small gemstone to the bottom right of the card.   Next add a ribbon bow to the top of the label.
Paint the chalkies over the white card and blend some distress ink around the card edges.
