Imagination Crafts - March Inspiration Post Tutorial.

Imagination Crafts - Tutorial for you -   

It's my turn to produce the "Imagination Crafts" mid-month tutorial this time round.   Iv'e used the lovely "Lillies " Decoupage stamp for this project as well as the gradient card.

This is the card Iv'e made for the March Inspiration post. Some of my future tutorials will be videos so watch this space for more to come.

March Inspiration Post - To start with I used some Imagination Crafts (gradient purple haze) card and Silver Sparkle Medium which I spread through the Lacy Swirl stencil.

Next I stamped the Decoupage Lillies stamp out 3 times with black waterproof ink onto white card.  I then spread some Diamond Sparkle Medium onto my glass mat and spread it with a brayer which I then rolled over 2 of the images to cover them in "Diamond Sparkle".  Once dry I cut out 2 sets of the "Sparkled" flowers  leaving one stamped image whole.   I then decoupaged one of the sparkled  flower images onto the whole image. (The second flower will be used for the bottom left side of the card)

 Next I inked around the whole image with purple ink then placed the whole stamped image onto the centre of the stenciled cardstock.  I then cut out swirls where the corners came to on the stencil so that the stamped image just sat behind the bits I'd cut out. (See the photo below).

Next I matted and layered the whole thing onto my card, added ribbons and twisted the ribbon onto the sides to decorate. A final flower was added to the left corner to finish and adhesive gems (coloured with a purlpe permanent marker) added to the centre of each flower bring the whole piece together. 

I'll be posting some videos onto my blog in the near future as well as some free Digi-Images for you. Til' next time - Happy crafting.
