two children Wendy and Tim,
I live in Maille (Indre et Loire 37 FRANCE).
I first started with the Scrap, then I turned to Free-style and especially the Mixed Media Art. .
Design Team: Scrap'a dit
- Strong paper, Bazzil type, canson.
- Cutter, cutter, fine scissors, drilling tool, fine and medium emery paper, glue.
- Heat gun, stamp, permanent ink, distress.
- Various images, beads, wire, various embellishments, cork, fine felt.
It is advisable to cut the atc's in the desired format 2 ½ on 3 ½ inch or 6.4 by 8.9 cm
Take a Bazzil paper of the brand " Core'dinations " which are dyed in the mass, when they are torn or sanded, the color appears, you may or may not ink them, while the other Bazzil are white (you must then ink them)
here are three different backgrounds, one torn, one sanded, one scraped.
Assembly, with the help of a printed paper we will prepare our background map, we tear, ink the edge of the paper and pose to the greek of our imagination.
You can use here a colorbox chalk ink to apply on the edge of the Basic Grey paper.
You glue this inked piece on a torn corner of bazzil
You take another paper, a background made with a Canson paper which is inked with Distress Peeled Paint ink, on which you put a decorated scotch ribbon. You stamp a word related to Christmas that you emboss with "Gold" powder.
You stick the piece prepared in step 3 on the bottom with the embossed stamp ...
Then add embellishments on the theme of Christmas, you'll have an original creation...
And now the card is finished ...
On this card you pasted a piece of inked music paper and drew a music scope.
A bit of paint sticker from Ranger on the edge of the bazzil...
You fold your piece of Bazzil, you pierce it, and with a wire you embellish it with beads...
Stamp a Christmas picture on a Canson paper, then cut it out...
with Distress inks you will colorize your image
you will glue it on your background, here the bazzil is painted with crackle paint, a scrap of Basic Grey paper is added as well as a piece of cork, the stamp image is highlighted with 3D adhesive.
You can then add some beads to decorate the holly. Here is the result :
