Mirror, Mirror By Kat Fullman

Hello to all, Kat here, AKA Kat's craft creations I am absolutely thrilled & privileged to be invited to be the GUEST DESIGNER for the month of April here on the Artistic Stamper Creative Team.

May I take this time to say a big thank you to Hels & Jennie
for the opportunity to show my craft creations here.

My first piece I would like to shaer with you is a Mirror that I have altered.

I have placed a piece of paper over the mirror
(so you don't get me in the reflection)

I have taken some step by step pics
to show how I made it and some of the things I used are also in the pics,
(so there will be less writing to read)
That's always good in my book.

I used
stamps from the the artistic stamper range pictured below;

Here's the mirror before I altered it;

I made a template using white card

With Antique Linen distress ink & blending tool
distress white card as shown,

Then use the same ink & this Calligraphic Mat 13 stamp
(love the size of this stamp)
& stamp all over as shown,

With these 3 stamp sets,

I stamped ramdomly using Sepia Archival Ink

blend inner & outer edges as shown,
Then glue this to the mirror,

Next is the embelishment part,

Make a selection of flowers as shown in pic above,
remember to shape them for extra dimention, then glue together,
I added a touch of rock candy distress stickles for that extra touch of sparkle
Hels has a fab tutorial on her blog
for the rose if your not sure how to make them.

Add some sparkly bits or gems,
I have used old & broken bits of jewellry for this one,
some silver buttons & 2 decorative stick pins from my stash
all stuck with silicone glue.

I think I have rememberd everything,

I will be back on the 14th with my second project
see you then, Have a crafty day,

This is absolutely wonderful, Kat. I have done the Malma mirrors myself before but not as good as this. Will definitely try doing it this way. Will look at your blog now as I am sure the rest of your work will be lovely too,
