Hello lovely lot. As you may have heard, the Tando team were given a 3D Challenge to feature in Craft Stamper Magazine.
We were all given the same 3D substrate, designed by Di to play with and decorate. Being a CS subscriber I have seen all the examples and they are all so different. There are so many things you can do with it.
Here is my take on it...
So, the 3D substrate opens up as a gate fold with help from the fabulous and creative stretchy hinges to reveal two little storage spaces to put in whatever you wish...
With Tando greyboard you can throw anything at it you wish, and that is just what I did! It can take a huge amount of different mediums without falling apart like other products.
So, my first layer was a nice thick layer of DecoArt Crackle Paint and DecoArt Texture Sand which I added both the different mediums quite randomly on the outside of the substrate.
When the crackle paint and texture sand had dried I painted it with DecoArt Premium acrylic paint. And added a bit of dry brushing with DecoArt white Gesso.
I added lots of stamping to the outside and inside using a selection of Carabelle Studio Stamps using StaZon Ink.
Then came the question, what to put inside.... I decided to turn my substrate in to a mini stationery kit, so I added some small pieces of paper and mini pencils. I thought this could be a cool little item to keep near the telephone, or next to the noticeboard when a quick list or message would need to made...
I took a piece of thin white ribbon and painted it with the different shades of blue DecoArt Premium Acrylics, then tied the ribbon at the front to close the gate fold front.
Thanks for popping by my blog today.
Toodles for now,
