I entered the Sweet Lilac Challenge with this and attatched the flowers using a hot glue gun.
The silver effect given for the horseshoe was achieved by spreading Pinflair glue gel over the mdf blank and then sprinkling silver bedazzles onto the gel, pressing them lightly into the glue gel.
I finished off with some pretty ivory coloured ribbon.
The next Sweet Lilac project is another Birthday reminder board but it is a little different as I was requested to make it for a Wedding Present .
I have used White gesso as the base on the board then stencilled with caramel adirondack ink and one of the Clarity Stamp frame stencils. I used this effect on the top and the sides of the board and on the Birthdays plaque. I went in between the uncoloured areas with adirondack lettuce inkpad again using a stencil brush,
The images are again Clarity Stamp and have been stamped using archival inks Potting Soil and Fern Green.
The sweet Lilac flowers were white in colour and I used a promarker (Tan) to ink the edges.
A caramel coloured piece of jewellery cord was used for hanging the board and the flowers and the Birthdays sentiment were attatched using pinflair glue gel.
To seal it I used the Crafters Companion spray and shine.
I have shown this to the lady who requested it and she thinks it is perfect for the people it is going to.
