Project Instructions:
Other products: Happy die, Bigz Swirl die, Vagabond, up cycled cardboard, Gesso, Viva Moldellier Paste in Hydranga and Blue, Pebeo Studio Acrylic in Iridescent Green, Bue and Pink, Inka Gold Rose Quartz, Stampendous Vintage Ice Fragments, Dreamweaver Texture Paste & Pearls

*Note: Viva Stamp Paint can be substituted for most paints used*

Cut a piece of heavy weight cardboard from packaging to desired size. Here packaging from a magnetic vent cover was used, 7” X 4 1/2”. Brush on a coat of Gesso. Randomly add Pink, Blue and Green Distress stain (or paint of choice). The stain gives a soft colored background so as not to detract from the mum.

Diecut the swirl with hearts from chipboard. The Bigz dies do a good job of cutting through some pretty hefty cardboard. Use the negative cut and place over the background. Use a palette knife to spread a thick white embossing paste over the swirl part. Use Viva Moldellier Paste in Hydranga  for the 2 hearts. Let Dry. Apply a thin coat of blue paint randomly over the swirl letting some white show.

Diecut the Enchanted Mum and the Classic leaf die. Also diecut a sentiment from silver glitter paper. I don’t recall who makes this Happy die. The Mum was diecut from The Enchanted Mum Paper Collection. The backside had a stripe so using a finger very lightly coat with Inka Gold Rose Quartz, it covers the stripes. Roll the leaves with the Rolling tool from Flower Shaping Essentials  and shape. Glue Berry Prills in the center of the mum. Set aside. Color the leaf with some green and a touch of blue paint.

Add some more texture to the background. Spread a thin layer of Dries As Clear Adhesive in random areas and sprinkle on some Stampendous Ice Fragments, press into glue. Add glue over some of the fragments and sprinkle on White and Berry Prills and press in. Using your finger smear some Iridescent Green paint here and there as well as a bit on the leaves.

Glue on the mum and leaves as well as the sentiment. To finish off the back either paint with Gesso or cover with paper from the Enchanted Mum Paper Collection.

Entered in SSS Monday up-cycle (I used packaging for my canvas and the negative diecut as a stencil)
