AIR Tutorial May Number 3

I am back with my third AIR Tutorial for Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko and this time it is with this months challenge - the LUXE Challenge (Memento Luxe™ that is!) - 'anything but paper!'




  • StazOn - Jet Black
  • IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Morocco Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink
  • IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Pistachio Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink
Preferred Promotional Partners:


Other:  Want2Scrap - Swirls Finesse bling, glue, Canvas Corp Canvas, acrylic block, Burlap offcut, Bakers Twine, Button, recycled lace

Start by stamping the flower image onto the canvas using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Morocco Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink and the sentiment in IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Pistachio Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink - set aside to dry completely.


Using a clean recycled jar and strong double sided tape attach a wide strip of burlap around the jar, followed by a wide strip of recycled lace.



Attach the stamped Canvas Label to the layered materials using Glue or a Hot Glue Gun, making sure it is centred.  Tie a double length of Bakers Twine to around the jar and across the top of the label - thread through a button and tie in a double bow.  Finish off by adding a large Gem in the centre of the flower and a Want2Scrap© Swirls Flourish across the label - cutting to go either side of the button.

A sentiment from SRM Stickers has been added around the edge of the lid  and some patterned paper to the lid - this has been cut using the Spellbinders  Standard Circles LG Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.




There are so many opportunities to upcycle in our homes - especially when we can alter and embellish them using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink.  

NOTE:  Memento Luxe Ink is a Mixed Media ink for use on any porous surface; permanent on fabric when heat set, it is a great ink for paper projects as well as mixed media   It is relatively fast drying for a pigment ink and highly fade resistant
