Magic Happens Collectables Cardstock Die-Cuts 50/Pkg

So when I heard about the challenge, to be very honest I was stumped! Simply because I realized that I don't have any particular style that i fancy yet.. :) But then i thought, yes I do have a style - the love for experimenting  :) So recently i took off from the love of colours and picked a style I fancy and i tried a Vintage Style.

Here is my photo frame which I made from scratch :)

I started with blank chipboard which I die cut and then layered with gesso and then distressed away with walnut stain and antique linen.. A bit of random stamping with some script stamps on the frame itself and then some mod podge and bits of paper later, I had my base ready :)

Here are some close ups of the frame details :)

Now these embellies :) arent they jusssst gorgeous :) I love love love my MOD MOLDS! These are Mod Podge CHA 2013 releases and they are simply too good.. You can now make your own embellies at home and colour them to your fancy! They come in 3 different designs- nature, ornaments, flowers.. :)

I've used my local craft gun and filled up the butterfly.. Just wait for about a minute and you can pop out the butterfly.. 

The best thing i like about them is that the object when dry, pop out with such ease! no more messes!

To colour the butterfly I mixed some distress ink with the gesso and painted it. Once dry I added the shading details :) 

Lulupu also has the mini melts in stock which can be used as well :)

That's all from me today! Waiting to see you showcase your styles and catch our FANCY! ;)

    I am thinking of getting the mold.. Could you please tell me how you got them filled? is there is a material I can buy at Lulupu?

    1. Hi nabeela

      Yes, lulupu has the glue gun refills and the mod melt sticks which are similar to glue gun sticks. just pop them into a hot melt glue gun and use in the mold. :)
