Graphic 45 french Country Plaque

IMG_2950 (Medium)Not a card today! A short while ago it was Mums birthday, and as she is crazy for roosters I made this plaque to put in with her present. The base is a large block of wood – my sister is swapping all her wood mounted stamps over to unmounted for ease of storage and she will then use them with acrylic blocks, she has a lot of stamps and I asked her to give me all the wood off cuts as I can think of lots of things to do with them – anyway this is where the wood came from – it once was the base for a large background stamp. I painted it with Viva metallic gold paint around the edges, and the rest with Vintage photo distress paint ( great stuff) and then covered it with images I had fussy cut from Graphic 45 French Country papers. I haven’t made a card with this paper yet but hopefully will get time this weekend to pull it out and have a play! I added a chipboard piece in the corner.Til tomorrow….
