MDF Plaque

I thought I would share a piece of home décor I made - an MDF plaque. I really enjoyed this project, but it definitely wasn't a quick make!

I started by painting the MDF shape with acrylic paint, then layered up torn patterned papers (which were also inked) onto the base. I added lace, die cuts (using Spellbinders decorative labels 8 for the vellum border behind the pink layer and Sara's Signature Collection Shabby Chic doily), hessian and a pearl swirl (made using Tonic nuvo drops) to create some texture. The label was created using a Justrite Amazing Paper Grace stamp and cut out using the matching die. I stamped the sentiment in brown and cut it out using a Sue Wilson oval die. I added a torn oval behind this to tie in with the shabby chic look. The white swirls on the oval are hand painted using acrylic paint.

The finishing touches were some die cut paper and vellum flowers that I layered up and added some die cut leaves below them.

I will be entering this piece into the following challenges:
