TIOT: so ready for spring!

Good Morning!

I am off to a VERY slow start this morning but i am finally here to share my TIOT project with you today. I got out my Viva Decor Modeling Cream and played around with it – LOVE that stuff!!! it is just deeLISH!

I have really been wanting to play with some of the Inkadinkado sets Susana brought in so i pulled out the Spring Garden Inchies set and stamped 3 of them in a square leaving the fourth corner open for a flower. I chose a super looking over-the-top flower – a Prima Roosevelt Delano.

for the background I began by taking a white piece of paper and the Harlequin Crafters Workshop Stencil. I simply laid the stencil over my paper and smoothed on the modeling cream. You must work quickly but not sloppily! hold the stencil down so it doesn’t pull up when you lift your spreader (i use a plastic, wide painting knife i found in the art section). Once you have covered the stencil lift it up and you have this gorgeous pearlescent embossed background:

You can see from the close up what a crisp edge i get – i just LOVE that! i also covered a Maya Road Chipboard swirl with modeling cream and a sponge dabber – gives it a great slight texture. You can see it peeking out from beneath the flower.

So what do you think? Have YOU used the Modeling Cream yet? How about the Stencils – you NEED these for sure! and just think of all the things you can do with those cute Inkadinkado Inchies sets!  And now it’s back to work for me!!!

 

i hope you all have a fabby weekend!!!
