Hello everyone Challenge 23 is live over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog. Our theme for this challenge is
Use a Charm
For my DT Project I decided to create this Wall Plaque
I started with a piece of scrap wood from my Dad's workshop, I sanded it down and shaped around the edges using his electric sander.
I then took the fabulous stencils supplied by Lisa That Craft Place and used TH DI Walnut Stain for the king fisher stencil but used it more as a florish around the outside of the plaque and then using my favourite Inca Gold in gold I made the beautiful angel face stencil appear. I spritzed the whole plaque then with Cosmic Shimmer in Bronze to give a wonderful glimmer all over. I added the gorgeous crochet lace from That Craft Place along the bottom of the plaque and spritzed and inked up 'Inspire' (a wooden piece from my stash) and placed along the top. I tucked the brass key bellow and topped with a 10mm open rose. For a wee touch of bling I added some bling on a roll from my stash which toned in well with the colour scheme. The cluster of flowers are from my stash but tucked in behind the bottom cluster is some fab burlap from That Craft Place. I made a little handmade leather bound book and tucked it into the cluster too, I love the effect of these little books and they are so so easy to make. I made the butterfly look as if it has a trail by using an old broken pearl necklace. To finish off I then dotted some diamond stickles in around the clusters of flowers.
Available from That Craft Place
Ditzy Design Stencils (well worth a look these are ace to work with)
Inca Gold (one of my favs and an essential for me)
