I knew they would look great as a home warming present for my gorgeous Sister and Brother in Law who have bought their first house together. I did call and ask for a colour scheme and too my horror Claire said cream and gold! I am not a cream kind of person, I'm a more is more kind of person so a challenge it was!
The letters were originally plain MDF and I gave them 2 coats of cream
acrylic paint. I stamped script in saddle brown stazon across the
letters and the stenciled over sequin off cut with the new metalic distress stain in gold and added some chicken wire stamping in the
The buttons are all made from WOW melt it and the pearl embossing powders. Perspective Thomas and I saw them demonstrated at the Big Stamp show at Ally Pally and were intrigued. The inspiration was the heart below from the Sugar and Spice crafts stand so knew that something nice in cream was possible. We had a go and made several buttons. It was great fun!
My sister loved the letters and they have pride of place in their new hall way. Unfortunately the C wouldn't stand alone so we have to swop the letters round. As a cream challenge to me it was a big one but I'm pleased with the results. Why not see what you can produce for the Crafty Boots Home Challenge and have a go!
