Did you see the show on Hochanda yesterday, sell outs!!! Must admit not surprised everything was a delight play with.. I had one jar left over!
I used :
Bee Crafty MDF Jar
Dragonfly from Bee Crafty MDF Pop Outs
Beautanicals Daisy (favourite)
Inkables Honeycombe stencil
Inkables Dripping Paint stencil
Versa Mark Ink
Black Embossing Powder
Distress Oxide Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers & Lucky Clover
available at: https://www.beecrafty.net/
First I used a gelli print from my stash, using the jar as a template I drew around it & cut it out.
Next I stencilled the Honeycombe in Squeezed Lemonade on to the paper jar.
Then using the Other two colours I stencilled through the Dripping Paint stencil.
Whilst that dried I painted the dragonfly with a combination of acrylic paint & watercolour pencils, adding some sparkle on the wings, when dry.
Next I triple embossed the jar frame, press the Versa Mark ink into the MDF frame, cover in embossing powder; shake off excess & put back into pot, heat powder until it melts, with heat tool. Repeat process twice, the first time takes a while as the MDF has to warm up, but after that it melts quite quickly, make sure it goes molten, but doesn't burn!
Using the Daisy stamp & Archival ink I created a background to the 'paper' jar & added some colour to the daisies with Inktense pencils.
I stuck the jar frame to the paper jar with a wet glue & added the dragonfly, using gel medium & buttons to give it some height.
To finish I stamped my sentiment onto an off cut of my gelli print & glued onto my jar & added some Posca hi-lights.
Thanks for stopping by... Ann x
