Imagination Crafts Inspiration Post - Christmas Wall Hanging

Hi all

For my Imagination Crafts Inspiration Post Iv'e made this Christmas Wall Hanger.

I used a Chipboard Frame which I painted black, then added Crackle, let it dry then went over it with white paint.  I love watching this crackle work - its fascinating.

I then used purple Sparkle Medium and a swirly stencil to each corner. I brayered over 3 Christmas shapes with purple and silver Sparkle Medium to decorate the chipboard baubles. 

I also painted the Dove white for the centre piece and added some holly leaves using card cut into shapes and Sparkle Medium painted over the top. Ribbons and adhesive stones were added to finish.

Here's the product list for you;

Sparkle Medium:  Diamond Quartz
                              Hunters Green

MDF Shapes:        Dove 
Acrylic Paint        Chalk
                             Crackle Medium

Stencil                   Butterfly Curls

Imagination Crafts November Challenge project

Hello again

For this month's Challenge project Iv'e gone all Christmassy.  This card was made using the Decoupage Stamp set in the Christmas range from Imagination Crafts.

I stamped the image out 6 times, 3 times onto vellum and 3 times onto white cardstock and cut out all the flowers.
I embossed the Vellum flowers first then spread "Detail Sparkle" onto the stamped images on the white cardstock. This gave them a lovely sparkle effect.

On my black background card,  I dipped a stencil brush into some Silver Sparkle Medium and ran my thumb along the bristles to give a splattered effect on the black card. This technique makes a fantastic sky full of glittery stars.

The flowers were arranged in a circle using lots of 3D foam pads to make them stand out.  The "Noel" from the same set was stamped in the middle and "Holly leaves" stamped around the edges which were embossed with silver embossing powder.

I hope you like my creation. Why not take another look at your stamps and see what you could make by using just a small section of a stamp.

The products I used were:

Stamps - Decoupage set - Flowers
Sparkle Medium             - Silver
Detail Sparkle                 - Silver Gilt
