Welcome to my latest followers, thanks so much for joining me on my creative journey.
This is my second Design Team post for Our Creative Corner. I would be most grateful if you could pop over there and see what my talented team mates have made and if you have time, please leave a comment. It would be even better if you joined in the challenge for this month. The lovely Jenny (Buttons) has challenged us with a recipe where we had to choose one or more items from each of the following lists:
For my piece I chose Lace/Metal/Wood/Paints and this is what I created, one of my favourite things - a chunky ATC (click on the photos for a closer view):
I used a wood block (salvaged from our recent building works) which measures the same size as an ATC but is 1.1/2" deep. The base block was painted with black soot distress paint. The block was then decorated with Prima Papers (Engraver). I used an Eiffel Tower die cut on the front along with some Tim Holtz rub-ons (front and side) and Chit Chat words which I edged with black marker pen.
On the back I used a Wendy Vecchi Blossom Bucket Butterfly, a Tim Holtz Idea-ology key and another run-on. On the side is a Spellbinder Fleur-de-Lis die cut. The feet are wooden beads which are painted with black soot distress paint. I added two rows of lace along he bottom, one in black and one in cream. The knob on the top is a crystal knob by 7 Gypsies.
I need to apologise to those of you that I follow regularly. It has been a very difficult week with a long awaited day at the hospital, a bit of a silly accident and DH is in hospital today for a little operation and some tests, so my commenting has been a bit erratic but hopefully things will get back to normal soon.
I hope you like my chunky ATC and that you will go over and visit Our Creative Corner. Big hugs, Anne xx
