Just a quick post from me today, as I am busy getting filings done and packing for the Make it show at Five!
At Manchester I was given a set of Butterflies from the MDF man, love his products.
So I decided to have a play with the smallest one from the set and turn it into a brooch I can wear at the show this coming weekend.
Here she is
I covered the Butterfly in Mod Podge and adhered some Bo Bunny paper then left it to dry, I then took a stamp by Indigo Blue (crackle) and stamped it in places with Corn Flower blue Archival ink.
Then I brushed the same colour ink around the edges and stamped using a splatter stamp by Tim Holtz around the edges using Potting Soil Archival ink. Stamped my verse in Potting soil and heat set.
Using Rock Candy Clear Crackle by Ranger I applied a good coating and left it to crackle, giving it a blast with my heat gun to finish it off. Added some Silver Treasure Gold around the edges and buffed to a shine.
|Love the texture|
I then added a brooch pin to the back using a bit of a glue stick and a heat gun ( couldn't find my glue gun ooppss)
