Some little home decor ......

It was my turn to post a tutorial at My Sketch World. I decided to go for home decor, a lantern for our table on the terrace.

This is what I need for my creation:

Image

Cardstock (Not to light!), Vellum, punch, dies, cord, pan pastel,
distress ink, water spritzer

I cut four templates with a Sizzix die; you can cut any shape,
 such as a rectangle, an arch, just anything!

Image

I applied distress ink .....

Image

.... and “spritzed and flicked” it with water …..

Image

….. all dried up now!

Image

I cut some “holes” into the top, you can use any die or punch,
such as flowers, snowflakes, circles etc.

Image

I applied Pan Pastel to the vellum …..

Image

….. punched circles …..

Image

….. and glued them to the back of the template.

Image

Now it’s time for the decoration. I cut a fence and as and
afterthought also some grass,

Image

which I glued together …..

Image

….. and adhered to the template, creating a little “belly”!

Image

I fixed all four templates with a tool (clamp) and punched
the holes. This way they will all be on the right position!

Image

Done ;)

Image

I added the birds and the butterflies (also an afterthought) ….

Image

….. and tied all templates together with a cord. I always use a pen
or something similar in between, this way my “hinges”
can still move and I don’t ruin the sides of my templates!

Image

A little present for a loved one, a little take along for a friend,
or just put it on the mantel or on the terrace in Summer,
that`s where I keep mine ;)

Image

Can’t wait for night to come ……

Thanks so much for following me through the journey of 18 pictures.
 I am still a beginner with tutorials!
