LIZ HERE WITH MY 1ST DESIGN TEAM POST

Hello girls,

Well to say that I am very excited to join Memory Maze's Design Team and work with a wonderful group of girls is an under statement and I can't wait to show you some of MM fantastic products.

Firstly, I decided to have a play with Memory Maze's heart stencils.  Although we don't celebrate Valentine's Day here in Australia, I could not resist making a card for my dear Hubby Ray.

So I set to with some water colour paper, sprayed with a little Tattered Angels Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist.  Then the gorgeous MM heart stencil with some Impasto and dried with a heat gun.

 I then applied some Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Dusty Concord'.

I love how this looks at the moment and you could stop here, but why????? It is a lot more fun to extend your work don't you think??  I decided to apply some Gesso over the whole area, just patchy
and dried with the heat gun once again.
Now for the fun part.............I embossed the hearts you could do this with clear or coloured embossing powder.

 So now all the play is over, I set to dressing up the card and here is my final result.  I used another heart stencil from Memory Maze to cut out the centre purple heart.


Now for a layout girls, here I have cut up the Memory Maze's Flourish, which I have spread with PVA Glue, then dried with heat gun to make it bubble up, looks great when it bubbles up. Then spread gesso over the top and dried with heat gun.  Sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist, which caused a dotted effect.

For the Memory Maze Anchor I covered it with Gesso and applied some Silks 'warm gray' and some Inca gold to give it an aged look.
Now for the final result..........................................................

Thanks for taking the time to look and don't forget to check out the wonderful array of goodies at Memory Maze
and until next time........Happy Scrapping   Love Liz.
