Bon Appetit

I was looking for a fun gift to give my Mom for her newly renovated kitchen and when I saw this little French Bulldog bank I knew I’d found what I was looking for. Covered in quotes from the Queen of French cuisine – Julia Child! He's a perfect little watch dog over her sleek new cooking space.

 

Directions:

1. Wash and dry the ceramic bank thoroughly.

2. Stamp several different French themed images onto white tissue paper using Jet Black Staz On ink.

3. Print Julia Child quotes and other French and/or kitchen related designs onto a sheet of Craft Attitude Printable Craft Film and let it dry over night.

*Tip – if you are printing text you will need to print it in reverse.

4. Trim the quotes and images from the tissue paper and Craft Attitude film.

5. Working in a small area, use an Ink Blusher to spread a thin layer of original Creative Medium on the bank then carefully place an image or quote in the wet medium. Apply a thin layer of Creative Medium over the newly applied image.

6. Continue adding additional quotes and images until the entire bank has been covered.

7. Once dry, apply a layer of Shimmer Creative Medium over the entire bank and let it dry.

8. Add finishing details to the dog by applying StazOn Studio Glaze to the eyes, nose, muzzle, ears and feet with DoodleStix and Ink Blushers.
