So here's my make this week:
I wanted to make something in monotone colours, as I love working with single colours and also to make something a little different.
So I started by making a mini canvas:
then decided, that this could easily be a gift, so decided to create a gift bag for it to pop into..
Then because I was having so much fun I decided to make a tag, which would fit perfectly round the neck of a lovely bottle of wine! or gift of your choice..
So for the canvas , I inked the background with antique linen and frayed burlap, forgotten how much I love this colour! Added some splats from distress stain ( antique linen) forgotten how much I love doing this too. Then when dry, I added the post script stamp in pumice stone. The house itself was stamped in walnut stain, coloured suing distress inks and pens and a waterbrush. Then when dry I used clear UTEE and embossed three times, to give the shine.
I finished off with an idea-ology crown , a chit chat sticker and some wire..( no surprise I found a way to get wire in then!)
The gift bag and the tag were made using the same palette of distress colours, but I added more walnut stain and also raised up the doors to create some dimension...
now for the fab ruler background. I stamped this out and coloured with antique linen distress then cut out and edged with frayed burlap. I then added the strips to the bag and tag to show this background can also be used to embellish pieces as well as to make fab backgrounds!
Finally I added some idea-ology and seam binding to the top of the tag.
thanks for stopping by, make sure you hop across and see what the rest of the design team have been making! There are so many possibilities with these fab art houses!, there are some fab makes already!
have a fab and inky one!
