It's Friday -- and that means Unity's "Friends With flair". This is my favorite post of the week. This is my time to make whatever I want -- no need to stick to an assignment or theme. I don't have to use a particular product or link to a certain company. All I have to do is ink up one (or more) of my favorite stamps and just have fun. Yeah. I love Fridays!
I've had this little chipboard banner by Maya Road sitting on my work desk, left over from another project. It's been needing to go on "something". I saw a card at Simon Says Stamp, and inspiration struck! As is often the case with scraplifted ideas, I took an idea, ran with it, and made it my own.
I used some orange Claudine Hellmuth Studio acrylic paint on the chipboard banner, then a small piece of paper from the Lawn Fawn "Into the Woods" 6x6 collection, tied with a little natural twine for the banner. There's some more "Into the Woods" paper down the side of the card. The stamped image and sentiment are from one of the first Stamp of the Week's last Fall called, "Nuts but I Love Ya". I stamped them both with Close To My Heart Cocoa ink. The sequins are also by Lawn Fawn. The woodgrain washi is from my stash.
Can you see the pretty leaves in the background? That's my back yard. I LOVE this time of year!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
