Imagination Crafts Inspiration =Celtic Dies

Hi all,

For the Imagination Crafts Inspiration Post this month Iv'e made this card using one of the lovely Celtic Dreams Dies.

To make this card I firstly covered a piece of cardstock with tissue paper, When dry I dropped Inkadinks onto the tissue and spritzed lightly with water then  let it dry thoroughly.  I mounted the card onto black cardstock and then onto a large white card inked around the edges.  The Die was cut from the Celtic Dreaams Die range using black cardstock. This was then added to the card.

I also cut out two Butterflies for the top and bottom of the card.

For the glitter, I spread a variety of Sparkle Medium onto a craft mat and let it dry.  Once dry I scrunched it up and dropped it onto the card at the top and bottom using PVA glue. I also added it to the butterflies and tops of the mushrooms to finish.

This card is a bit different but then I do like to do things a little bit out of the ordinary. Back soon with more creations.  See you again soon for more Inspiration.

Products used

Sparkle Medium
Blue Moonstone
Royal Purple

Canvas for Imagination Crafts February project

Hi all

Iv'e created a canvas for my Feb project for Imagination Crafts.

Why not pop along and take a look at the new website here to see some of the new and exciting products for sale. There is a Bargain Basement too with money off some lovely stencils and other products.

This canvas was made with three of the stencils available in the shop. I painted the canvas with white and cream chalk paint and added red inks so that the colours blended on the canvas. I also stenciled through the Wheat and Orchid Stencil with red inks to give a soft look before stenciling with Sparkle Medium.

Imagination Crafts have 2 blogs, one with tutorials and one Challenge blog where you can win lots of lovely prizes.
