It was such fun viewing all the truly fabulous all white creations you produced for us last week.
This week we want a PRINCE CHARMING ................so any card/creation for a Male and add a charm ! !
I decided to use the sketch I did for Basic Grey a couple of weeks ago, I don't usually like my own sketches but amazingly liked and enjoyed this one.
This has to be one of my favourite Edwin's and I've sat him on the Whiff of Joy Chair. This chair is one of the most useful stamps, I've sat so many of my images on this chair, animals included. Both chair and Edwin are coloured with my trust Copics. The edges are distressed with Walnut Stain distressed ink and glittered with Gold Stickles. The papers are from Basic Grey's Offbeat pad and the circles cut with Spellbinders round nesties and the border with the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch punch.
Now came the fun part - using shrink plastic to make a charm. If you have never tried this - give it a go - it's such fun!!! I stamped Edwin with Stazon onto the plastic and cut out leaving 2 to 3 mm around the edge and a tab at the top in which to punch a hole with a Cropodile.
Here's is where you are told to colour the image but I find the colours come out too strong so I shrink my image first then colour it when using Copics.
I popped it (on a piece of foil) in a low/medium oven (along with my leg of lamb on this occasion) for about 30/40 seconds.
If it's not totally flat - push it flat with your fingers for a couple of seconds - then colour away and you have yourselves a personalized charm.
I also added a couple of silver charms, one available at the Simon Says Stamp Store, the butterfuly I received in a RAK from a friend.
The leaves are cut with a Woodware punch and the flower from various punches and dies, the ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment a Tim Holtz adage ticket.
