Spotlight Creative Embellishments - Fantasy

Welcome to the first of this month's Sponsor Spotlights!

Hello dear crafters, Kerstin  here and I am so pleased to bring you the first Sponsor Spotlight of April!

  This month our Sponsor is
  Creative Embellishments are offering a $25 gift certificate to our randomly drawn winner


They have a huge assortment of gorgeous chipboards and it was not easy to decided
What should I choose???

 I adore Creative Embellishments because they fit into creative work in so many ways. You can work with colors, structures and effects, but also stamping, or work with embossing powder or embossing folders. 
 The chipboards give the project the special touch with a great 3D effect.
 They are wonderful craft items to work with! 

Here is what I have chosen to make with these beautiful embellishments :-)
I decided to work with a lot of Steampunk chipboards

Inventive genius and adventurous romance are what makes Steampunk so very special and exciting to me. I hope you will be inspired by this paradox and magical world too!

 I started with a gift box from which I cut out a window.
From an old gift box to a shadow box - Recycling is in !! -
The background was designed with stamps, multi-coloured stamp pads and distress color

At the beginning I primed the chipboards with white acrylic paint

The Chipboards are made of sturdy cardboard, which is ideally suited for embossing.
It creates interesting structures, which can be emphasized with metallic effects.
You can also stack the chipboards

The other embellishments were decorated with different acrylic colors, mainly silver, rust, patina green tone and black, to give the creation the appearance of something old, rusted and weathered.


Different tones and effects often appear better in the sunlight ;-)

I had so much fun and joy when experimenting and I advise everybody to try it yourself,  
There are so many things you can do with embellishments. What will you do with them?

Come back on the 25th to see some more Creative Embellishments!

Hope to see you then!
