For todays something Different I thought I´d have a go at a plaque. My Mum is shortly moving house so when I saw this plaque in my bits and bobs box (I keep a collection of charity shop and other finds in a large box to up-cycle or change when I get the chance) I realised this would be perfect as a house warming present. I matched the colours to the gift I made her for Mothers day, which can be found here, namely Lilac and White.
Next I distressed the edges with sandpaper and purple distress ink (I must learn the names of the colours, I just grab)
I then simply added a handmade paper rose using Christine's technique here in core´dinations paper, some foliage with the Spellbinders Foliage die and various bits of ribbon and lace from my stash.
Finally I added the word HOME which I cut in black vinyl using my Craft Robo. The craft Robo is a brilliant, if expensive, tool however I don't have the patience to cut paper with it preferring to use my Grand Calibur however it cuts vinyl like butter.
This was going to be made using my fabric flowers with a tutorial of how I make them but as the OH is over this week from the cold U.K. I ran out of time!
Tomorrow Sunday Mojo may be a little late as well as I have airport duties but it will be here. Enjoy...
