We have had a super
topic this week haven't we?
It is good to have to think
outside the box now and
then...............oh do stop
Here's Helen Chilton to
show us a completely
different take on the
"Here's my Tando Cubbeys Kit decorated with
Starlight paints and Kim Dellow stamps
Gesso the Cubbey boxes and glue them together
then paint in chosen colours of Starlights -
I used Jade, Canary yellow and Apple Green.
Stamp in black round the edges using EKD06.
Then paint them in using the same Starlight colours
Stamp and black emboss lots of the flowers
and cut them out
Paint with more Starlights -
I used Orange Oxidized, Bright Fuchsia and
Dark Orchid as well as the colours already used
Wrap a length of copper wire round a bamboo skewer...
.....so that it looks like this.
Fix a brad to centre of flower
Flip over and attach wire stalk to the brad
Here are a selection of wired flowers.
Note I've cut the middle out of some of the flowers.
For the smallest Cubbey which I'm going to
use as a flower pot, insert a punched piece
of board to hold the wire stems.
Large Cubbey. The stalk on the front yellow flower
is made of thicker wire that's been flattened.
Medium sized Cubbey with a flower springing out the side.
Little Cubbey. I've scrumpled up thin
green wire to hold stems upright.
Then you can arrange them all
as you wish!"

Im sure I would be constantly
changing the arrangement!

I have not been spelling Cubbeys right.
