Midway at 'Unstampabelles'

Good Evening everyone. We are halfway through our challenge at Unstampabelles. This month we are asking you to decorate something wooden and the Twist is 'Get messy with paint'

There are lots of wooden things you might like to paint or some may be in need of some TLC. You could use wooden embellishments or simply a twig or branch from the garden of hedgerow. What about a wooden spoon, spatula, picture frame? Any of these would be suitable.

Here is my inspiration for you.

I used some wooden letters that I had a box of from eons ago. The person the card was for is a dolls house maker so I thought something made from wood was appropriate. The messy paint bit came when I added gold paint to them. The paint just sunk into the wood and even after several coats still looked a drab yucky colour!!.....dull gold I suppose. I added a matt of embossed old gold to the front cover ands a 'belly band' and 'Happy Birthday' of mirri gold.

                                                              This is a pop and twist card.


You can get a die to cut the pop and twist cards but I just use my own measurements and design......quite easy really once you've done a few I have!! Lots of tutorials on Youtube if you want to have a go!! Great fun!!

Please pop over to Unstampabelles for more inspiration. ( Link in sidebar)
