Today on the blog I’m sharing a card I made for the Thing’s to Alter design team. Things to Alter is a website run by Jac Desordre who makes the most gorgeous MDF shapes, Jac even takes requests for new shapes! The website is full of all different types of shapes, from words and adorable wooden grids to 3-D birdcages to drawer units. So, I chose Birds on a Wire (a bargain at 40p each) Geoclusters- Bubble Frame (50p) and an Open Butterfly (25p).
I painted the shapes in varying shades of pink acrylic and sponged gold acrylic on the edges. The Birds on a Wire, have been treated the same but then I’ve added the little bird markings on and dabbed on some iridescent glitter glue on their tummies for extra sparkle!
The card itself has been made using First Edition’s ‘Pretty Posy’ papers and using the most fabulous die from Sizzix and Tim Holtz, “Mixed Media’, I’ve die-cut the edges and backed with a pale blue vellum.
I’ve used the Bubble Frame to use up some scraps of lace and ribbon I had, and backed them with more papers from the ‘Pretty Posy’ paper pack.
The sentiment, made with individual letters from Hobbycraft, has been finished with a resin flower from docrafts that has had a dark pink acrylic dabbed on.
Thank you to Jac for allowing me to join this month’s DT. You have to check out her website and have a wander around… you will definitely not be disappointed!
