Jane loved this quote so much that she decided to turn it into something she could hang in her craft room. Jane laid the leaf frame over the canvas and spread a thick costing of texture paste then gently lifted the template away and dried the canvas.
Layers of Glimmer Mists were sprayed over the top and allowed then to dry. For the quote piece Jane first applied a coat of spray adhesive to the back of the 'If You Believe' template, this will ensure that it will stay in place on her cardstock, she then applied VersaMark ink all over the card, removed the template then poured clear embossing powder over the whole piece and heat set it. When the Glimmer Mists are applied over it is when the magic begins and the quote comes to life!!
Jane loved playing with the leaf frame so she decided to try it on a card as well. She created this stunning effect above by laying the template on watercolour card and spreading a thick layer of texture paste over it and leaving it to dry. The leaves were covered in layers of colour – first she sprayed Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist was sprayed all over it and then painted Olive Vine Glimmer Mist with a paintbrush. She then sprayed Vanilla Breeze over the entire piece and dried it once again.
Jane recommends that the piece must be completely dry for the next step. She dabbed the VersaMark ink pad over the whole piece then poured clear embossing powder over it and heat set it, she repeated this step to give a rich thick shiny coating to resemble a glossy tile. Jane just loved the outcome and will definitely be doing this technique again!
Chris also shows us how the Crafter's Workshop Templates can easily be used to create a piece of artwork for your wall. Chris used the Inque Boutique blendable markers again on this project to create the background on the white cardstock. She scribbled with her markers onto a acrylic stamp block and then using a paint brush and a little bit of water she painted the background.
Chris then laid the template over the painted background and inked all around the template with black ink. The exciting part is removing the template and revealing the gorgeous image! Chris then inked the butterflies onto another piece of white cardstock, cut them out and used 3D foam tape to layer them over the butterflies on the image to give them extra pop! The sentiment is also from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages set.
Oh what fun Chris had with the 6x6 Crafter's Workshop Templates. For this bright and colourful card she used the Inque Boutique Blendable markers to colour in the flowers of the template onto white cardstock. She then coloured in a few of the flowers a second time onto another piece of white cardstock and cut them out to mount them onto her card using 3D foam tape.
To make the flowers pop even more Chris added some Hero Arts flowers and Zva Creative Crystals. The sentiment is also Hero Arts from the ‘Anytime Messages’ set.
With the Houndstooth template Chris has mixed together some polished pigments and acrylic medium and painted it over the template onto the Basic Grey pattern paper. This creates a whole new look for the paper and can be used as a background pattern on the card. The flowers on the card are also cut out from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious 6x6 paper pad . The card was finished off with the Hero Arts 'Anytime Messages' sentiment.
We thank Roberta Wax for sharing her lovely card using The Crafters Workshop 6x6 template. Roberta placed the Gathered Flowers template onto the cardstock and used a few different coloured sprays to create this wonderful effect. Roberta says "The fun thing about playing with sprays and templates is that you can make several background sheets at once, giving you a nice stash for later."
Thank you Roberta.
Finally we spotted this fab card by Angela Ploegman using the inner circle of the Sunburst 12 x 12 template by The Crafters Workshop. Angela says the card was Inspired by an Allison Davis Card Sketch (Sketch Support) and she used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists with The Crafters Workshop template to create this effect. Many thanks for sharing your lovely card with us Angela.
