Glass Painting Card Challenge

This challenge is slightly different and will hopefully get your creativity flowing!

It is linked in to the questionnaire the I have been doing for the company that I work for as we are considering expanding into the craft market. The only thing is we mainly sell fine art materials, not so much craft materials. The closest we have to a 'craft product' is the Decorfin Glass and Relief Paints (there are also a few others on the page that the link goes to).

Before we do some advertising in CB, we want to see what the general reaction is to the glass paint, and what kind of card makes you will come up with. What makes this challenge different is that the company that supplies us -Royal Talens has provided the glass paints, relief paint and a brush, and we will cover the postage.

So the challenge is to make 2 cards,

One being a glass painted topper, that can be set on a card if you wish to demonstrate how it could be used, but the marks will only be to the topper itself.

One having a wedding theme, using the glass and relief paints along with what ever you feel inspired to.

The only thing that must be done is to combine the glass paint together with the relief paint. This can be done on any surface or background that you feel lead to, as it is very versatile and will go onto any surface. Just be sure to take your time and read the leaflet that will be enclosed and visit our company blog for tips on how to use it if it is new to you. There is also examples of work on the blog too.

The colours we will provide are Fuchsia, Turquoise, Violet and a gold relief paint.

The closing date for this challenge is Friday 11th June 8pm.

Could you please either e-mail me at or Upload your entries to the Glass Painted Challnege thread over on the Crafts Beautiful Forum please. http:// Thank you!

If you don't want to do it this way just PM me! Finally we only ask that you fill in a short questionnaire that we will email you (if you have already answered one that's great!)
