Imagine by Dorthe Hansen


Hello again friends, a new Monday, a new blog post from me, to you.









I have been playing with the gorgeous Metallic paint, and Sparklers Spray, and I wish you could see it in real life. Not much sun either, to catch the brilliant shine, from the two products when photographing!!

But this is what I did. Starting with a piece of cardboard, I tore to have the uneven edges, all around.

I painted it with the Metallic Paint Bronze and left it to dry. While waiting, I found another piece of paper in my stash with old Italian script (any paper of your choice can be used). This was also torn, even more uneven and the edge was gone over with Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.

After I stenciled a row, using 3 of the pattern from the Dinky Stencil Decorative Background, I added straight away some Copper embossing powder and heated it with a heat gun. I hope you can see the extra layer of little bubbles it created.







In the meantime my painted bronze Metallic had dried and I now made a border all around the edges, using the Dinky Stencil Decorative Border, with the Vintage Photo.

I adhered the Italian paper onto the top of it and using the script from Motivational Words Stamp Set 1, I stamped with Vintage Photo on the left side border, to create a little movement.

The next step was tearing a piece of corrugated card board to fit inside the Italian paper piece. It was painted with a little gesso and when dry stenciled with one of my favourites, Hole in the Wall Repeat, with modelling paste. It was left to totally dry and then sprayed with Walnut Ink, to get into all holes and crannies. On top of that, a good many sprays of the beautiful Sparklers Spray Pale Gold - I hope you can see it?






I adhered it to the card with hot glue and sprayed again with the Sparklers spray all over the card. After that I added a lovely MDF heart, left in its brown natural look.

I love creating roses and a used baby wipe on my table was inviting  me to try using it! I cut two pieces on the long length and in turning it around on itself, I made the rose (lots of tutorials on YouTube if you want to try). Together with a piece of brown nylon and some threads it was placed on top of the heart, using the glue gun.







Again using a piece of the Italian Paper, I stenciled the word Imagine from the Word Series stencil again using Vintage Photo and then adhered it to the card. A row of Decorative Background was stenciled on top of it and that finished my creation.

  1. You have managed to capture the shimmer and sparkle perfectly Dorthe and yes I can see those delightful bubbles from the embossing. This has a rather shabby chic look with your handmade flower framed sweetly on that heart.. Hugs Tracey xx
