COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE #41
Good morning everyone
I hope your week is going well.
It's time again for the Colour Create Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by "The Design Team" and we have chosen "Your Choice of Pastel Colours". The optional extra is "Spring or Easter".
Our sponsor for this challenge is
"Di's Digi Downloads". Di is
an amazingly talented artist and we are so lucky to have her on our design team too!!!
I have chosen the Easter theme and have made a couple of plant stakes. My sweet friend Tina showed me how to make these last year....and they were so much fun to do I decided to make some more.
The images are from High Hopes..."Bunny Blooms" and "Bunny with a gift".
I chose a 3/8" Birch wood. It is painted with a coat of pickling paint...which is a thin white primer. When it has dried...(I left it overnight)...I cut them out with my scroll saw leaving an edge all the way around. I stamped and embossed the images with Perfect Medium and black embossing powder. I painted them with watered down white acrylic paint. When that was dry I used a glue pen around the edges and sprinkled on white glitter. I drilled a 1/4" hole in the bottom and added a 1/4" dowel. A couple of little bows and there you have it...Easter plant stakes!!!
