I am sharing a project for AALL & Create this week, one that I made a few weeks ago
for the Hochanda shows. I love Tracy's Ladybird stamp (AALL & Create #161) and I had also acquired some Mica sheets and so I combined the two.
I had some MDF left over from another project, it was in the shape of a frame, approx 6" x 4", I couldn't throw it out and so I decorated it to use it to frame the Ladybird.
You can see the 'frame' above. I also cut some plain Kraft cardstock to fit behind the frame.
I covered the frame with some Builder's scrim and painted over the whole frame with some dark brown paint. Next, I applied a layer of embossing ink and embossed the whole frame with embossing powder (clear powder). I stamped and embossed the image onto the Kraft card, then coloured the Ladybird with alcohol markers.
I coloured a Mica sheet with Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink, on both sides.
I cut the Mica sheet to the same size as the Ladybird body. I stamped and cut the heart and I also embossed some brads, which would later be added to the Ladybird to cover up the glue after attaching the Mica sheet.
Since I wanted the Mica sheet to be raised, I glued some jump rings over the spots, applied more glue and then attached the Mica sheet over this.
This is a view with the final brads attached to the Mica sheet.
Finally, I added the frame, the heart and a stamped word 'Ladybird' to the finished frame.
If you wish to purchase the Ladybird stamp set (A4 sized) direct from AALL & Create or you can visit HERE, where you will find a list of worldwide stockists.
Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon!
