Chocolate Baroque Guest Designer- project 2 - Ribbon holder and happy heart.

Hello everyone.
It is my slot as a guest designer again and today I have  two projects for you using the Tranquility set of stamps. A lovely oriental style theme.

The first one is a ribbon holder, which I have found useful . If you like the idea you could have a different one for each colourway. They would look pretty sitting on the shelf.

 I have used an empty cardboard container and cut a piece of card to wrap around it. This was then decorated with various stamps from the set  coloured and stuck onto the cylinder.
The top edge was decorated with silver foil  over the strong , red double sided tape.
Holes were then punched around the edge with my punch.

The heart would make a lovely accompaniment for the ribbon holder, if giving as a gift.

Products  used:  Tranquillity stamp set, 12cm. heart, black paint, Versamark inkpad, silver embossing powder. Beads and card to back.

The heart was painted black and left to dry thoroughly.
I swiped it over with an antistatic bag. Particularly important as I was using metallic powder and this has a tendency to pick up every finger print on the project!
The images were then stamped and silver embossed. As my heart was wooden, I needed  to be aware and hold it with a clip, I usually use a peg. for this, as the wood gets surprisingly hot.
I then wiped the inkpad around the edge and embossed.
The flowers were coloured with Mica powders, to add a slight shimmer.
The heart was then mounted onto a background colour. Mine was card , but felt is good too.
the beads were then stuck around the edge.

This is a lovely gift for a friend if you can bear to part with it. Mine cheers me up every time I look at it.

                                                 Hope you have enjoyed my project.
See you next time for something completely different.
Bye for now and thank you for visiting.
Happy crafting.
