I have still be working on finishing off the Kaisercraft wooden kits and today I would like to feature this gazebo/t-lite holder that I have decorated up with the wonderful CTMH products.
I have painted the main parts of the gazebo/t-lite holder with a mixture of the Create a Shade Paint and Flaxen re-inker to give it a pearly metallic look. I have painted the rest with a flat acrylic paint Burnt Umber from Daler Rowney for some contrast. I sealed everything with Modge Podge. I have really enjoyed using a paint brush again but found it tiring.
Now for the flowers.and leaves.
For the flowers I have used Creme Brulee cardstock and cut out the shapes using the same pattern from Cathy Derouche that I used with the bird and the cage here. The shapes have been sponged with Smoothie ink and the flowers turned out even better than I thought they would be. I have not used a lot of Creme Brulee or Smoothie cardstock or ink but the combination is stunning. I have cut two smaller sizes from Cathy’s instructions to have a progression in size up the sides and around the top. I have also done a number of single roses as rose buds.
The other leaves have been cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge page 35 of the booklet at 2″ from Flaxen cardstock and I have sponged the edges with Olive ink. I used my hot glue gun as my hand was a little sore to keep squeezing the Liquid glass bottle.
Here are some close up of the flowers.
This would look great with a matching coloured glass with a t-lite inside and/or on a wedding table.
I have finished with the Kaisercraft and will look to get back into cardmaking and scrapbooking. I have a big fair coming up and need to do a variety of cards to sell there and I have another blog hop to do.
In the meantime have a good week and Happy Crafting
