Today's project is a framed forest picture that is so easy to make. I'm going to take you through it step-by-step so that you can create your very own piece of pop art. You need relatively few supplies although you do need a Big Shot Machine. Scroll down to the tutorial for a complete list of crafting supplies.
I've made this project to take to the Needham Market Summer Mind, Body, Spirit Fair which is on this Saturday 15th July from 1000-1600hrs. If you're in the area please pop in and say hi. There will be lots of fantastic traders, therapists and readers - well worth a look.
Today's picture is similar to the one I made on the 28th January, except I have used different colours and I have also used both sides of the embossing folder to create an image and a negative of the same image.
How to make this picture
1. Find a frame that you like - I got this one from QD Stores, you may or may not be able to find this exact frame at the time of writing. A white frame would look just as nice with really bright colours. IKEA is always fantastic for frames and for these sorts of craft projects.
2. Pick out Ink Refills in the colours you want to use:
3. Drop colour onto one of the sides of the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and spread about with an Aqua Painter. I used two colours at a time (you can't really tell by the photograph) and I chose which side to colour at random.
4. Place a piece of Whisper White A4 Cardstock (cut down to size) into the embossing folder.
5. Run through the Big Shot Machine.
6. Using a brayer, lightly roll over your cardstock using a Classic Stampin' Pad. I used Early Espresso but any contrasting colour works fine.
7. Repeat in different colours.
7. Allow to dry, add your cardstock pieces to your frame and voila!
