Back to Basics - CCB challenge

The City Crafter's blog challenge this week is Back to Basics. You are to use some type of paint and some re-cycled cardboard. I love the distressed cardboard that everyone is using in their projects and what fun to rip up some old cardboard and paint on it!

Here is my end project. I think it would be nice as a wall hanging or on an easel.

 The images are from the Class Act - Chapel Road Artstamps - Vanity plate.  The floral branch is Recollections. 

The background is a piece of cardboard that I distressed and painted with Sand Acrylic paint from Ranger. The flowers are from the Vanity plate and are stamped across the background using Ranger Archival ink - Coffee. The little flowers are stamped on ivory cardstock and colored using watercolor pencils and distressed around the edges with brown dye ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

  11. This is just beautiful Sue. So many beautiful elements brought together so cleverly. I love the titchy little bird and the whole piece definitely warrants being on display. To put it away in a box would be such a waste if something lovely to look at.
