Well that's not exactly true is it? I've not a paint brush out to make this calendar, I've used Sheena's fab new paint fusion CD Rom, details on Crafters Companion news and inspiration blog.. I've made a similar type of easel calendar a couple of months ago using the strawberry kisses stamp set and thought i would give it another go as i had 9 2012 calendars still to use. So now only 8 left, it ll be Christmas again before i get them used.
I've chosen 4 different toppers from the CD, printed on water colour card and then matted the topper onto Sheena's mount board shapes. I've then embossed the edges with gold embossing powder and they really do look as they've been painted and not printed from the CD. Ive then made an easel card with a 6x6inch card base made from snow white centura pearl and matted and layered with core'dinations. The top mat i have embossed in my cuttlebug using a darice embossing folder. To finish i have added a cordinations card scrunched up rolled rose and then just a bit of ribbon.
Watch out for Sheena's show as she has the pick of the week on Friday on C&C with 3 fab new products so this is only 1 of them.
Hope you like it.
