I've been super busy as usual. Still trying to settle into the new place and working on decorating now. Plus I've had lots of orders with the shop over the last couple of days. So I'm running a little behind and have a late posting of my Saturday Our Creative Corner post. Liliana is our host again this week and her challenge is "Woody with a Button". We are to use some sort of wood, real, faux, stamped, embossed, etc. I've had some real wood, thin bark-type strips that I have never used. I was afraid to put it through my Cuttlebug as it was a bit thick and I didn't want to break it. So I cut a piece of chipboard with the TH Baroque die, traced it onto the bark and then hand cut it out. That worked just fine. I was afraid the bark might be very brittle and sort of fall apart, but it actually was quite tough and flexible. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo DI.
The leaves are Ranger foil tape over card stock, cut with an old Sizzlet die, run through the Regal Flourish texture fade and painted with the Vintaj Weather Copper patina paints. My flower is various fabrics cut with the Tattered Florals die, plus a bit of vintage crochet work and a rhinestone button from Melissa Frances. The Dream stamp is from the Artistic Outpost Huck Finn set.
So that's it for my Our Creative Corner make for this week. Hope you will stop by and see what the rest of the team has to jumpstart your creativity for the weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. I so appreciate your encouragement and support!
