My post for today is an image by
I coloured back in April on a Promarker class
I attended at my local craft store.
Didn't have an occasion at the time to use it so it has been
I had a 2nd wooden frame that I had bought for 50p from
the local charity shop so I decided to repaint using the
colours from the image.
Base is 'Willow Tree' tester pot in matt paint
left to dry , then given a liberal coating of
PVA adhesive (by brushing the adhesive on first one way and then
the other you get a much finer crackle appear
see here for the difference) and then quickly covered with another
tester pot ' Dusted Fondant'.
Fortunately I still had the promarker colour chart from the class
so I was able to use the same pens to colour the roses with.
I used Spellbinders 'Rose Creations' and
Die-namics 'Royal Leaves' dies to create them.
A close up below of the coloured image.
Fairly pleased with my efforts as I'm not a colourist.
