For my Tando related product I just had to use our new spooky themed ELEMENTS PLATES - CI-360 and CI-361, along with the fantastically gothic TANDO TRIPLE ARCH FRAME. To begin with I used gold acrylic, then crackle medium, and finally shades of blue acrylic, on the back and the frame layers to give a cool crackly effect:
I then used papers from an old book, sprayed with dye inks, and stencilled one of our new masks - Beautiful Border down the side of the papers to get this -
I cut the papers to size and slotted them into the front arches of the frame, and added some sequin waste to decorate -
Loving that blue!
Then I set about decorating my arches with our rubber stamps CI-360, and CI-361. I also used the crow from CI-319, as it was the perfect size.
This is the finished article, with the close-ups to follow - Hope you like it?
To achieve the colours on the stamped card I used sprays first and then stamped and embossed the images with black embossing powder. Whilst the molten powder was still hot I added a little holographic embossing powder to give some sparkle. I cut out the focal images and then mounted them individually on sparkly card and cut around again. I added little bottles, coloured micro beads, coloured open weave scrim, antique gold chain and corners, and a key to finish. The small crows 'flying around' at the top are glued onto wire. The dangly arrow at the bottom was made from one of the pieces of chipboard that comes with the Tando frame.
