It's time again for the midway reminder for the
The theme as usual is Anything goes.......but not cards.
I still had some of the goodies we were given
left over from the last challenge
which was sponsored by Woodware.
There was ribbon and cardboard baubles
plus a plaque in the pile and as Christmas is not
in the too far distant future I decided
to make a Hanging Ornament with them.
First though I needed to decorate the baubles.
I used a technique that I had learnt at a recent workshop
I had attended.
The cardboard shapes were coloured using Promarkers
then covered with Versamark before being dipped in
Papermania holographic embossing powder and heat set.
Once cooled down I laid a stencil over the top.
This one is by Imagination Crafts 'Wisteria '
and makes a pretty pattern when only using
a section of the design.
I stamped over with the versa mark and used
Cosmic shimmer ultra thick embossing crystals
in 'Bronze Lustre'.
Once heat set and allowed to cool the whole bauble was
covered in versa mark and dipped in clear gloss EP.
before being heat set again.
They now have a lovely glassy feel/shine to them.
Sentiment was cut with a Britannia word die
ad heat embossed with the cosmic shimmer crystals.
I punched a row of holes long the bottom of the plaque
and threaded through with the ribbon and tied the baubles
on at different heights until I got the weights right
in order to hang straight.
