Framed woodland scene

Good evening

A quick one tonight

I've had fun creating this.  The frame I used cost 50p and is plastic with glass in the middle

I distressed the frame using imagination crafts starlight paints,  crackle glaze, gesso and wax medium.

The picture I created using Donna Ratcliffe fairy stamps, spectrum noir water reactive inks,  sparkle pens , white gel pen and imagination crafts sparkle medium 

I decoupaged the fairy by cutting her out to create dimension and then glued the finished scene onto the glass. 

Die cuts are from tattered lace. 

Thanks so much for stopping by 

Have a lovely week

Love Sharon

Regal gates light up diorama card

Good evening 

I've been all over the place the past few months due to a very severe depression.  There's a lot of stigma concerning mental health still so was very aware of this and embarrassed to mention it here.

It got so bad I had to see doctors urgently this week and have a meeting with the crisis team.   I can honestly say it's been the worst 2 half months of my whole life.   I'm slowly getting there but it's going to take time 

Anyway so last night I created this Light up diorama card using crafters companion regal gates cut & emboss folder & Christmas village embossing folder.   They're 3d folders and are just stunning. To have a look at their selection click here:
Regal gates cut & emboss folder

I embossed 2 pieces of card using Christmas village embossing folder & regal gate cut and emboss folder.  Once embossed I went over gate with gold starlight wax and the village with pearl starlight wax mixed with a bit of gold.  I used artsy stones from imagination crafts for the snow and white gel pen to add highlights.  

I placed Christmas village one at the back of diaroma card and used cut & emboss folder for the front to cut the aperture and then matted my finished one to the front.  
I used Brown shimmer card & Sara's luxury cotton paper behind the gates to create shadow & her flourish die.

Lights I use are micro lights, I pierced holes at the back where I wanted them placed then pushed them through & taped round the back.  The rest are embellishments & flourishes added on to make it pop. 

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments & taking the time to come and look ❤
