Crafts And Me tag challenge

craftsandme1a

This tag is made as DT for Crafts And Me – May challenge #148.
I´ve used Crafts And Me rubberstamp: Art Deco – Bride/Flapper and
Pearl Necklace Lady Cameo Art Mould together with Delight Clay 
and the lovely metal Flower Butterflcraftsandme1b

Crafts And Me blog

Teresa Hollington, the owner of Crafts And Me asked me if I would like
to be a part of her design team. I have decided to quit some of my DT
commitments, but after some thinking I said yes. There is a challenge
every 4:th in the months, and one day the other weeks to put up some
inspiration in her blog. Sounds great! =)

It´s truly fun to be in so many talented design teams, and that they
asked me personally, but I have no time if there´s too much to think about
with different pages and too much information to keep in mind.
My brain will boil! LOL

How I create, step by step

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1l

I´ve been asked if I will join Thats Just So Cute as a guest designer in February, and of course I will! So fun! I´ve made this card after my choice of challenge theme: My sketch, shabby chic and at lace.

The hot air ballons is chipboard, and they comes from Scrapiniec.
I combine this challenge post with my dt post for Scrapiniec.

2014-02-05 20.50.41

This is the sketch, and it´s ok to turn it on what way you want, but it will be clear that you´ve used the sketch. Jump over to Thats Just So Cute and join the challenge! I will put toghether the prize for the winner!

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1a

This is how I create.
First I choose things I want on my card.
Here is both decorations, motives and papers.
I NEVER glue anything before I´ve put it
together at the card, and I´m satisfied with
the places for everything. I can sit for an
hour and move around things before I´m
totally satisfied.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1b

This is my favorite tools.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1c

This is my favorite medium; gesso, white crackle paint, fran-tage embossing, glossy accent, stickles Star Dust, chalk, sparklers (like stickles but thinner – you have to use a brush) and distress paint.
I´m not use everything on every creation, but almost.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1d

First I roll around every paper like this.
Or use a sewing machine.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1e

Then I put on some chalk…

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1f

…or distress paint… or gesso… it´s different from time to time.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1g

And then I distresss the edges with an edge scraper. It´s easier to do that AFTER chalk, because the chalk make the paper a little bit wet, and I prefer that. AND the chalk will be alive a little bit longer.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1h

When I´m totally satisfied with how I want everything to
be on my creation, I glue it.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1i

Then I use a brush and paint white gesso at flowers, papers, corners, charms and other things. Just to make it shabby. I prefer it that way. It looks a little bit more alive then. After gesso I use crackle paint here and there so it got crackled and looks old.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1j

I use stickles, star dust is my favorite, at flowers and some details.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1k

I love to use glossy accent on details. If it´s a colored motive I use it on shoes, eyes, lips somtimes, buttons and other small details. I love the effect it will make to the whole creation. Here I have used it at the text. It´s stickers and i like it to be a little bit glossy to pop.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1m

When the creation has dried it looks like this!
