MDF Plaque Number 2

A few weeks back I posted one of my MDF plaques on the blog, which can be found here: At the time, I actually made 3 (all in slightly different designs), and today I'm sharing another of them. I think this one might actually be my favourite!

 The base plaque is made of MDF that I painted using acrylic paint. I layered up patterned papers in brown and blue tones onto the base, ripping and inking the edges for a distressed look. I added a die cut border and doily, both cut from vellum and lightly inked with Distress Ink. Hessian, inked lace and a pearl swirl (done free-hand using Tonic Nuvo drops) were also added for some texture.

For the focal point I used 2 ripped rectangles of card in blue and cream that were both inked and I offset the blue one on top of the cream one. I die cut the smallest label from Spellbinders decorative labels 8 from blue and added that atop the cream rectangle. I stamped my sentiment onto a cream rectangle that I added to the centre. I die cut flowers from vellum, cream card and blue card and shaped these to give them depth. These were added along with die cut leaves to finish off the project. I had a lot of fun making this! Although it's not a quick project, it's definitely something to get your teeth into and try lots of different techniques.

I will be entering this one into the following challenges:
More Mixed Media Challenge anything goes + optional black
Creatalicious Challenge #128 anything goes with optional flourishes
A Bit More Time To Craft #57 anything goes

Sunday is the release date for the Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps December 2017 release! The stamps will be shown on Create and Craft TV at 10am (UK time), and I will be sharing some of my samples on the blog on Sunday too. I had great fun making them so can't wait to show them off!
