My 2Crafty September Reveal #1

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
It is my turn again over at the 2Crafty Blog and I would like to share the first of my September DT projects with you.
This is a card I created using some of their gorgeous chippies.
2Crafty products used
Heidi Vines
Mini Chicken Wire Barbed
The papers used are from Maja and, as you can see, I did a little stamping and stenciling as well as some doodling around the edges.


Lightly sprayed the back of the Heidi Vine with some water so it could be slightly shaped.  It was then coloured with Distress Inks and brushed with gesso.  I also added some texture paste to the 'bulbs' on the ends  and coloured them with Distress Ink and then swiped over the top with gold Versa Color.


The Chicken Wire Barbed comes in a 6" x 6" panel.  I simply cut off some small pieces and painted them with white acrylic paint.  While they were still wet, I sprinkled them with clear glitter and, when dry, tucked them in between the paper layers.  I love the look of torn paper and making some small tears over the chippies helps to show them off.



A closie of the flower cluster and that's a pleated doily peeking out from the rips in the paper.


Decorated the inside with a strip of the same paper which was edge punched with Martha Stewart's Optic Dot  Border Punch.  I also added a few strips of washi tape.




As I said at the start of this post this is the first of my 2Crafty projects for this month.  I have two more to share and I will be posting them over the next few days.  I do hope you will  come back to take a look.
In the meantime, why not pop over to the 2Crafty Blog and see what the rest of the DT Team have created.  You can find it HERE and to find a 2Crafty stockist near you ... drop an email to salesat2crafty@optusnet.com.au

Take care and God Bless.
