December Colour Theme-Christmas Snowflake Cubbey- Fiona Randall

 Morning All it's Colour theme week on the Tando Blog.

 For my project I used one of the Tando Cubbey's


I used three colours from the colour swatch to create my christmas snowflake cubbey.


After assembly I gave the inside a coat of DecoArt Chalky finish in Carbon and then a coat of DecoArt Media Ultra Matte Varnish to seal. The outside was given a coat of DecoArt Chalky finish in Timeless. Once dry a coat of DecoArt Crackle Medium for chalk paint was applied. This was then dried with a heat tool. ( yes you can dry this product with a heat tool). Once dry DecoArt Chalky Finish in Honour was applied with a sponge. By applying with a sponge it eliminates brush strokes and the possibility of removing the crackle. This was then dried with a heat tool to speed up the crackle effect. 
The edges of the cubbey were then swiped with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in silver spark.
Next up a piece of card stock was embossed with a mini 3d Lumber folder. This was then spritzed and sprayed with Distress Ink Sprays in Chipped Sapphire and Old Paper with a little of the Distress Mica Spray Stain in Snow Flurries for shimmer and shine. This was then glued into the cubbey.
Next up a piece of old book paper was applied to a piece of card stock with decoupage glue. Once dry this was die cut and embossed using the 3D mini impresslits snowflake folder. The edges of the snowflakes were inked with Ground Espresso distress ink.
The Snowflakes were then swiped with the silver spark metallic Lustre to the raised edges.
A Tando  Snowflake was swiped with the silver spark Metallic Lustre and a brad attached to the centre. A small Bookplate was given the same treatment and a sentiment stamped and attached.
 The snowflakes were then layered up and  applied to the Cubbey with a piece of grey board attached to the back to give depth and dimension. The bookplate was then attached to finish.
