Well here's another first for me. I am now going to attempt to give you my first blog tutorial (double scary).
Over at Pink Tulip we sell some fab doorplates with keys, three designs are available. Sheila challenged me Tracy and Angela to design with them so I have decided to show you all what I have done with my first attempt. They only cost £1.50 each !!!!
So here goes, hope you like it and can understand my instructions (let me know if you can't).
Spray the inked doorplate with a shimmer spray, I used a Perfect Pearl Spray in Sunflower Sparkle, then dry with a heat gun. Use up any left over spray on your craft mat as it adds to the design.
When dry stamp with the Tim Holtz Stuff To Say stamp set from Stampers Anonymous. I used black archival and Versafine in sepia to ink with.
Draw round the edges of the plate with a gold Krylon Pen.
I added lace to the left side.
Swipe a Vintage Photo ink pad over the key, it gives it a really good look,then touch over with black ink.
Stamp over the key with the same stamps. I have coloured and stamped both sides.
Punch a hole in the top of the doorplate and tie the plate and key together either with ribbon or chain, as i have.
Add three hat pins to the flower.
