Milla (my granddaughter) and Hannah (her bestest friend) came for a day of crafting and apparently they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They made these "plaques".
This is Milla's.
I cut them some mount board 4.5" x 8". I die cut the bird cage and dress form (Tim Holtz) which my friend Tasha left for me to play with. The birdcage: Milla used Victorian Velvet for the background with a hint of black. The birdcage was done the same as was the bird. The flourish is one from a set I have had since I don't know when and the words are PaperArtsy stamps. The dress form: The background is weathered wood and the dress form is broken china with walnut stain for the "wood" bits with a Butterfly Kisses "Couture" stamp in black. The cotton reel has some blue ribbon and the button has the same ribbon threaded through it. The scissors are from a set of Artistic Stamper stamps (I think!). The black ribbon is organza.
Hannah's birdcage: The back ground is wild honey DI with frayed burlap on top. Aged Mahogany was used for the edges. The birdcage was also wild honey with a Inka Gold rubbed on top to give it that aged gilt look. The flourish is from another set which I have had forever stamped in Aged Mahogany as is the quote from "Da Man" Tim. Her dress form background is Milled Lavender with Dusty Concorde on the edge. The dress form is broken china with walnut stain for the "wood". The stamping on the actual dress form is "Love" by Crafty Individuals.
As you can see I think they both did an amazing job. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I am still knackered!!!
Hope I haven't bored you all too much but I am a tad proud of them really. Bless their little hearts!
Thanks for looking.
