the new challenge is up at The stamp man and the theme this fortnight is "Vellum". I decided to make a candle holder.
First I started with and ordinary drinking glass(although this was one that was a bit stained up from my paints.)
Next I cut a piece of A4 vellum in half and stamped my butterflies them embossed in clear and colored the back side using Distress inks.
Next I stamped the script inking my stamp with Time Holtz Distress stain in Walnut and heat dried it.
Once dry I took a baby wipe and wiped gently across the vellum. to create a smeared effect (When done this looked like white birch wood)
Next step was to glue the Vellum around the glass then snip and roll the edges out on the top of the glass. Once that was done I created more butterflies using the above technique with embossing and cut them out to add to decorations. The flower is done with vellum cut out using Tim Holtz Tattered florals die. I then layered the pieces and inked with Mustard seed Distress ink. I then spritzed the vellum with water and dried with a heat gun. this caused the petals to curl in naturally. I added it to a bit of twine and there you have it in a nutshell!
Now don't forget there is a gift certificate up for grabs from The Stamp Man for one lucky winner. So don't be shy come and join us for another great challenge.
Now I am off on holiday! thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
