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.
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.
