Well here we are on week three already. I have been desperately trying to find different ways to use these stamps to show their versatility but kept coming back to the same idea. The caravan and sentiment “home is where you park it” just cries out to be a picture in a frame or a wall plaque. I thought this would be quite cute to give someone who lives in a static caravan possibly.
Anyway, I used the backing board from the foil/glimmer paper because it is much sturdier than our usual card and I cut two identical heart shapes, sticking them together. I then did my very best to shabby chic it up a little by using numerous coloured inkpads to make the grungy type base. I then stamped 3rd generation images from the grateful bunch stamp set to create the background and the flowers which I punched out using the coordinating punch.To be honest I have never really ventured into the vintage and shabby chic style so I’m not sure I have entirely captured the look.
Using a standard black journaling pen, I created the faux stitching around the heart shape and finally stamped and coloured the caravan image and sentiment. Punching a hole and threading some blushing bride stitched ribbon, the project is complete.
As I say, its not something I would normally create but using a stamp set that you haven’t chosen yourself pushes you out of your comfort zone and forces you to think in a completely different way to your norm. I rather like the outcome this week, I hope you do too. All materials used are listed below.
Thanks for stopping by.
