The inspiration challenge this week goes to this store and I found this table runner here. (isn't that divine?) love it, when I spun my laptop around towards hubs and showed him he was like stop shopping in that store... ( the price tags yikes) oh if a popup is there for you when you click it, you can closet that box from the X you dont have to join the site to view the products. :) but, anyways I pulled out my gelli plate for the first time on friday night and this print of deli paper ( on top of the corrugate under the medallion) is one of those. (it was done with Open acrylic paint and a tim holtz embossing folder) I used some matte multi medium to adhere it to the corrugate. the corrugate I had pressed into the gelli plate for a background on another print and I like the colors of paint on it and let it dry like that after. the medallion is heat embossed in gold on pale green and I used some broken china distress over the top of the sentiment so the cream was not so stark with the other colors. ( I don't own any brown paint yet so, the blues are just a contrast to all the brown textures. ) this one is 6" square in real life.
this sentiment is from Penny Black. and the embossing folder used on the print was from Tim Holtz. with some very old basic grey printed paper. this one is 6" square in real life.
just because the pairing made me laugh. this print was also done with a tim holtz folder and then saturday am it was sprayed through a poppy stencil with some sunshine (can't think of how to spell her name spray) (the bright cheerful ones ) anyways this one is A-6 in real life. ( sentiment is made by the same designer of the spray as the stamp) the type writer wood piece was pressed into a broken china pad.
and then for the heck of it, I opened up the tin of pre colored images. now, keep in mind these have been in there a very long time and the choice has become. use them or toss them... and I really did not like coloring this one. ( no clue why )so the idea of having to color it again was like No, just use this up. not sure who make the printed paper, the button is vintage. the sentiment? best guess is maybe Gina K.
its 6" Square in real life.
I am starting to feel like just maybe I will have "enough" cards for the booth in May if it holds. ( they have had some vendor's back out and are looking to replace them if you are local and thinking about trying a booth.)
