A couple of projects......

I've been playing again with some Tando Chippie and Viva Decor Croco,  I so love Viva Decor products, I have lots of them now and of course I have a tiny bit of Tando chippie too LOL.

The first is one of the Tando oval frames which I have covered firstly with Silver Croco.  Once it had dried I used the fabby Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing inks in four vintage colours and painted different parts of the croco.  The background is one of the new Impression Obsession Stamps in script which I then ran through an embossing folder to add some dots.

The birds (also Tando) were simply covered with patterned paper and the edges inked with distress inks.  A little dot of Viva Decor gloss gel gave the finishing touch to the eyes.  Gloss gel was also used on the stand.

The second piece has very similar techniques.  The chippie at the back again uses the Impression Obsession stamp and has been embossed as before.

This time I used 4 Tando wavy dominoes and a straight inchie for the Croco and Acrylic drawing ink treatment and then I finished off the piece with 2 Tando butterflies painted with Viva Decor metalic paint and the drawing ink to draw in the fine lines.  Oh...and gloss gel for the butterfly bodies.
