Chinese Lanterns - Tammy

 I have something special to show you all today, it is a sneak of two of the amazing new designs that 2crafty have just released. The design team girls have been lucky enough to have had a chance to play with the new designs so be prepared to see some fabulous new chipboard product on the blog :).


   The minute I saw the Chinese lanterns I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them, I wanted the colours to be bright and bold so I primed the chipboard with white paint and then gave each lantern a few good coats of my coloured paints. I love that the lanterns didn't buckle under all the paint (just shows again how brilliant 2 crafty chippies are). I used my sharpies again (yes it's my favourite technique LOL) and finished off with a good covering of black sharpie. I think I am going to have to get more of these lanterns because they are divine! I have also used a Parisian Border which is just so detailed, it is stunning. Oh and whislt I'm here just wanted to say that the photos on this page were taken by the very talented Anthea.
 Now don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win some goodies and also give the sketch a go, never know what you might get in your prize pack.
