Tsunami Rose Challenge 12: Color Inspiration

Morning Peeps
Its Tsumani Rose Challenge Wednesday and this week the theme is Colour Inspiration

I have a  bit of a confession i completely mixed up my themes and so didn't have time to make a colour inspiration project this week but to redeem myself here's a showcase of one of Daisy's printables

This time I've used 6X6 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper- "Vintage CalaLilly"- http://www.zibbet.com/tsunamirose/artwork?artworkId=875079


I'm loving this one with the ledger type background and my grungy side sneaked in hee hee

I printed the paper and layered the Lilly up for some dimension
Then I just went to town distressing it, roughening / tearing the edges a bit of chicken wire masking and blobs of white acrylic and I just used a lid dipped in paint for the 'cup rings'
Matted and layered up on white and text card added a bit of glossy accents and a few bits of tiny text stickers which I drew on with a fine liner and drew round with picket fence Marker :)


Here's the challenge deets hope you can come and join in xx

My New DI storage shelf

Hi Peeps
Just wanted to share this
I recently bought two DI storage shelves from Crafty Emblies it holds 30 pads if you stack them 3 high and all other pads such as Stazon / Adirondack fit nicely too, £4..50 each peeps ??? BARGAIN ALERT
Mother nicked one and I've decorated the other and thought i'd share how I did it after a few requests

Okay Here goes.......
I painted the whole of the unit in black acrylic (slightly watered down)
Using the TIN FOIL TECHNIQUE I measured out the sides and top and cut card to size and covered the card in foil (i didnt paint at this stage)
(the top pieces lap but you cant see the join due to the pattern)

If you chose an embossing folder with a repeat or a busy pattern, its easy to emboss a section... move the card up in the folder and then carry on until its all embossed and for this effect the paint will cover a multitude of sins so don't be too fussy with it

Once you've embossed your pieces just glue them in place to the unit, (I used modge podge) then I applied the paint but you could do this before you stick them down if you wish

The strips on the shelf fronts are the same technique, I just used a folder with lots of rulers on and cut it into strips, again don't worry about joining it, the paint hides it, if you run down the edges with an embossing tool it makes it look neater !!

I then just covered a chip board frame with scraps of foil and added the text........Done
Im going to order two more and do the same ...... they look great !!
