Plate #2 is Blue!!

For the second in my 8 piece set of Christmas Dinnerware I have used Sunshine's Stamps new Snowman with Tree image and "In the Meadow" sentiment to decorate this plate! I am thinking my sister-in-law will be falling for this plate heavily!! It's kinda her fave colour!!

Here are the deets on how I made this one. I coloured the images with my Prismacolour Markers and then I separated the tree's from the snowmen. All the images have been stripped down to the thinnest layer to provide as little bulk at the bottom of the plate as possible. The centre image and sentiment have been torn and frayed around the edges and inked with my Versafine Lagoon Blue ink pad and sponge daubers. To soften the effect I also sponged some Martha Stewart white over everything as well.

I used Mod Podge to adhere the images to the back of the plate. Once they were adhered in the correct positions I covered the entire back of the plate with a good layer of Mod Podge and sprinkled microfine blue glitter all over the back of the plate. After I let it dry I applied another coat of Mod Podge and glitter to the back of the plate to fill in the thin area's. Once dry the back of the plate was covered with a good layer of clear water based acrylic.

I really hope you like this one as much as I do!! Thanks for stopping by! I am off to start plate #3 before I head to bed!
