My group of happy crafters arrived on a wet and very cool morning. After a bit of sorting and generous swapping as our bird images were not all the same, we got down to work on our platters. A lot of new techniques were developed for this class.
When you work on a project like this the steps have to be in a logical order. Can you see the delicate lace-like border on the plate? This was created by stamping a Lace Fragment Stamp onto the edges.
It has taken me ages to own this stamp set from Chocolate Baroque - now I love it!
The ladies discovered that it takes a bit of practice on a curved glass surface and from one stamp there were so many different effects. Then we added Viva Decor Pearls to dress up the edges.
Here comes the fingers crossed bit. We needed the stamping and pearls to dry....so we took our plates up and put them in a warm oven. Super Star watched them carefully and after we had morning tea we were then ready for all the decorating and decision making that needed to be made.
I used a piece of Websters Pages Strawberry Fields Paper for the background. This is such a pretty new range!
|Can you see the delicate stamping along the edges? This is from the Lace Fragments too!|
What a happy realisation it was when we all saw that Elly's Plate was convex and was Awesome! NO she won't be serving anything on it but it will be a gorgeous display piece....From an oops to an on trend wow!
