I am not posting a card today.I have been playing a lot with this new 'bit of kit.' Well, say new but I bought my Melt Pot in April at the Ally-Pally in London.
I have only just got around to using it because I saw an article in this months Craft Stamper magazine called Faux Porcelain Flowers. I read the article and looked on the site recommended /http://sherrycheever.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ and was hooked !!
|My first faux porcelain flower|
I had a great afternoon and this is what I produced ....not bad for a FIRST attempt .
The pink flower was cut with my Nestabilities (Dahlia) then coloured in with distressed inks and its dippy time into the pot!
The second and I think, better flower, was cut using the first four Blossom Nestie dies and some lovely printed paper.
I also used a heat gun on this one to smooth out the bits and bubbles left after I had removed it from the pot.
The video on Sherry's site is easy to follow. However, she uses a different flower and a slightly different technique to the one in the Craft Stamper mag....anyway I had great fun.
Thanks for stopping by
Have a good weekend
