Floral Money Wrap

Hello Friends
Here is a floral money wrap I made .
Used stencils , die cuts , handmade foamriam flowers,  Inka Gold , Mudra sequins and Chipzeb

First I distressed the white cardstock with vintage distress oxide
Then with the help of the wire mess stencil I made the background
Added another stencil ...damask background with inka gold
Placed a lacey snowflakes die cut as the base to add the floral layout.
Then placed the leaves and flourishes.
Made Foamiran flowers using  heartfelt creation Sunkissed fleur die
Colored them with archival inks  ( as I did not have the pastels crayons :( but the effects are good)
Assembled them .
Finally added the Mudra Gold Sequins and Chipzeb.
Loved the bling on the money wrap after adding Mudra Gold Sequins ( it has the right mix of sizes to use on any project.)

Decoupage stand for the Itsy Bitsy Spotlight

Hello friends,
I am here with an awesome news that I have been selected as 'Crafter in the Spotlight' by the premium craft store Itsy Bitsy India.. So here is the project I made for the same with a pictorial tutorial.

You all can check my interview here Itsy Bitsy Blog

Here is the step by step tutorial for the multipurpose stand. Anything can be kept in it like stationary items, cutlery or even remotes.
Step 1
I took a mdf stand with three partitions and the Vintage Rose Tissue napkin.  I divided the stand in three parts with pencil.
**I must say the tissue napkins are so well individually packed that they don’t get any creases.**

Step 2
I masked the stand and applied Little Birdie Muted Teal chalk paint on the unmasked area.

Step 3

Now after drying I applied Little Birdie One step Crackle medium. I heat dried it and applied Little Birdie Snow chalk paint  to show the cracks 

Step 4
Now I took the tissue napkin and cut them in several pieces according to the design I want to place.  Always remove the white backing paper from the tissue, be careful.

Step 5
Now I arranged the tissue pieces all around the stand and adhere with Little Birdie Decoupage glue matt

I adhered several more pieces to give a better design as I felt that the stand was looking incomplete

Step 6

With the help of a stencil and Little Birdie 2 in 1 mixed media paste I gave the stand a little embossed effect. I gave the design randomly on all sides of the stand. After applying the paste on the stencil I removed the stencil and heat set it with Little Birdie Heat tool.

**Itsy Bitsy is making Crafters life so easy by placing the QR code on each product. I got a bit confused so I quickly scanned the QR code and the YouTube link was there to sort out all my confusion.  **

Step 7
I stamped little flourishes here and there to make the design look complete.

Step 8
I stamped little flourishes here and there to make the design look complete.

Step 9
I then applied VersaCraft Pale Aqua on the edges and the top.

Step 10
I applied Little Birdie Varnish Gloss all over and dried it.
I gave 2 coats of it to cover all areas.

Supplies Used

Final pictures of the completed multipurpose stand

I hope you all like it.
Please do let me know how you liked it.
