I wanted to do something very fun and different for my first challenge as a DT member on Simon Says Stamp and Show. The challenge is Anything Goes this week, which really allowed me to come up with something different.
I had these awesome wooden spoons just waiting for something to happen.
I was inspired to create some place card holders for a family gathering. Each spoon allowed me to create a personalized place setting for my guest.
Here is my family of spoons:
The images are stamped on white cardstock and colored using watercolor pencils and a water brush. I cut them out and attached them with watered down Elmer's glue. I glued underneath the image and over the surface.
After that each spoon had their embellishments hand selected to coordinate. I used the stains to color seam binding to coordinate. Each spoon has a memo ring attached to slip a card with the guest's name on it.
I also created two other spoons with a few different accents. I highlighted the words on the spoon and used mini clothespins for the clip.
