Michelle Perkett Challenge #23

This is my DT project for this week's challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio. The challenge this week is "Anything but a Card"...right up my alley lol! I LOVE to make 3D projects.

I decided that seeing as how I was going to Victoria to visit my other 2 grandkids, I'd make up a little parcel of presents for each of them. Hannah's bedroom is decorated in purple...one of my favourite colours...so I made a purple frame for her to put on her shelves.

The frame is a Kaiser wood 25cm square frame. I painted the frame in metallic purple craft paint and papered the front with Kaiser paper from the Airy Fairy collection. From another sheet of paper I cut out 2 of the butterflies and mounted them over the corresponding butterflies on the frame, to give some dimension. The butterflies have been highlighted with dimensional glaze, a little glitter and spritzed with Glimmer Mist...I've just discovered this product...it's LOVELY :)

The Butterfly Fairy, available from Michelle's Etsy shop, was printed onto Neenah Classic Crest paper and coloured with Copics. She was then highlighted with glitter pens, her wings glittered and the whole image spritzed with Glimmer Mist. The image was cut out and mounted on dimensional dots.

CM alpha stickers were used for Hannah's name and a small Kaiser rhinestone used in the centre of the starburst near her name. And of course the frame was finished off with a photo of our beautiful little  girl.

Although it's not part of the challenge, I also made Brody a frame for his room. He has a quilt cover that has bright little cars on it so I went looking for a car image to put on his frame...unfortunately Michelle doesn't have boy images in her collection...might have to have a serious chat with her about that LOL!!...I found this one at Mo's Digital Pencil.

The frame is the same size as Hannah's. The frame was painted with royal blue craft paint and paper from the Kaiser Esperance collection was used for the front.

The image was printed onto Neenah Classic Crest and coloured with Copics. Dimensional glaze was used on sections of the car to add depth. The image was then cut out and mounted on dimensional dots.  CM alpha stickers were used for Brody's name.

And of course the photo of Brody is very cute :)  [Notice his little stuffed toy joey hanging on the net behind him...soooo cute]
