Paris Skyline.. by Gez

Good morning, Gez here. This week the Design Team are bringing you their creations based around a firework/multi coloured theme.. Today, it's my turn to share my creation with you..

Apologies beforehand for the rotten photograph, how hard is it to get a decent photo this time of the year! This arch is full of sparkle tho you wouldn't know to look at it!!

I have used one of the brand NEW arches from Tando Creative Arabian style Layered Arch Frame set, creating an inky background using Distress Inks.

Next I stamped my image directly onto the arch using a permanent black ink. I painted a strip of the Lace effect borders and left to air dry while I worked on the exciting bit...

 Lace effect borders

 The FUN bit!

As soon as I saw the Tando Creative Ink Splatters Mask

I knew they would make the PERFECT fireworks!

I have  looooooong  struggled to find something out there that resembled fireworks but I think this mask works perfectly, *happy* dance!!

First of all I laid the mask over the arch and positioned the splatters then painted through the mask with white acrylic paint and left them to air dry.. later I went over the splatters with Stickles glitter glue.. I wish you could see the sparkle!

Thank you for calling today & leaving a comment if you get the chance.

Happy creating, Gez oxoxo
