I think I can speak for the whole of the That’s Crafty! Design Team when I say we are all beyond excited to be taking part in this collaboration with the Relics and Artifacts Ambassadors.
I must say a special thanks to Lynne Moncrieff and Sandra Evertson for making this collaboration happen and a big thank you to all the Relics and Artifacts team.
We have a week of fabulous projects coming up, starting Monday 24th April and ending on Sunday 30th April. The week will showcase how fantastically well the Relics and Artifacts and That’s Crafty! Surfaces work together.
Each day there will be a post from a That’s Crafty! Design Team member and a Relics and Artifacts Ambassador and the blog posts will go live every day at 11.00am GMT and 6.00am EST.
We hope you will join in the collaboration each day, as there will be two very special prizes! One lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate for £25 from That’s Crafty! and the other lucky winner will receive 3 sets of Relics and Artifacts Matte Resin Craft Blanks of their choice, from Relics and Artifacts!
Here’s what you have to do for a chance to win:
1. Visit both blogs each day and leave a comment.
2. Become a follower of the That’s Crafty! blog.
It’s that easy! The winners will be picked at random on Tuesday 2nd May 2017.
We have a fantastic project from Moira to start off our collaboration.
Relics and Artifacts Imperial Eggs and Chandelier Pendants
Prima Stencil 569419
Pebeo Dyna Paints - Orange/Yellow, Red/Blue Violet/Blue and Blue /Green
Vintaj Brass Sparrow
I do love wearing jewellery, but being built on the well upholstered side, small necklaces tend to get lost on me, mainly down the cleavage! So I wondered “just how big can I go with a piece of statement jewellery?” and this is the result.
I gave the Arch Upright a coat if texture paste through the stencil. When dry I added the orange/yellow, violet/blue and red/blue paints, with the gold wax around the edge and over the raised stencil area.
I gave the egg a coat of the blue/green paint then stamped the dots with Versamark around the base of the egg, added the Stamp n Bond, heated it and applied the gold foil. I attached the egg to the Upright. I coloured the Sparrow with the violet blue paint and added a hint of the gold wax and attached it to the egg.
Although the necklace was a good size I felt it needed more so I coloured the Chandelier with the same Dyna paints as the Upright and coloured a small bird charm with the green/blue paint and gold wax and attached it to the Chandelier and attached that to the upright.
Two holes drilled into the Upright allowed me to string ribbon to hang the necklace and finally a gold crown charm completed the project.
Now I just need to find the right outfit to wear this piece with, maybe black is best to set it off.
