Studio Daphnat # 7 - RESULTS
The technique itself is very fun and easy to do....but when it comes to making something with your selfmade woven chipboard background...the problems begin...
So....I decided to make a background for my chipboard "carpet" because I loved it so much in itself, I wanted it to be to focus of my project.
I made a background with Ecoline in 3 colours (including gold) and I used coarse seasalt to get this effect.
Then I stamped with different stamps and Stazon colours on my chipboard strips and inked some of the edges with Cat's Eye ink, to make them stand out more.
What else did I use?
A fabric sample from a Chinese manufacturer I took home from my work, black velvet ribbon, 7 Gypsies red letter tape, Basic Grey Wholy Cow rub-ons, skeleton leaves, a piece of pink lace from my wedding bouquet, white ribbon.....
As a finishing touch I added some Gold Mica Flakes from Golden Paints on 3 places. I might add some of these flakes later on to the outside of the frame.
I am very pleased with the result! Go check out Nat's website to see what she made.
