Tando Hugs n Kisses competition

~{Tando Creative Ltd}~ are running a competition to win this fabulous decorated Hugs and Kisses Board. This board is unique as it is a larger version of the one available to buy and has been specially made just for this competition. It includes a chipboard base and 10 completely individual chipboard pieces that have been beautifully decorated by ladies from all round the country. The pieces have all been signed on the back by the artist.
The competition is open until Sunday 14th February when a winner will be picked at random to win this prize.
To enter the competition all you need to do is make make any project, whether it be a card, altered art, scrapbook page etc using a piece/pieces of Tando Creative chipboard. The project must be made for the competition so not shown previously on blogs or galleries

This is the completed board that members of the Bubblyfunk Forum have decorated.

I decorated the base by painting it with Pearl Acrylic paint, then sanding it gently. Then I used Tea Dye DI all over it and edged it with Walnut Stain DI, which really darkened and sank into the sanded bits. I used a big Hero Arts text stamp that has butterflies in it and stamped in Timber Brown Stazon.

The stamp left a thin gap down the middle so I edged a strip of brown card and cut 3 stamped hearts to attach. I stamped some butterflies and added just a touch of Copics to give a slight colouring to them, then finished off with flowers.

The borders are separate pieces that have been painted, inked and Rock Candied. I had a bit of fun positioning them so they were equal, but used silicone glue so I could move them a bit!!

Head over to the ~{Tando Blog}~ if you'd like a chance to win it.

Fantastic job with the board Kaz! I love the butterflies, both on the script portions and pulled out as decorative elements on the dividers.
