I adore this phrase from the Studio 12 stamp range (from Polka Doodles) and can't stop using at the moment and have made another project using it. OH recently received a package which had a stiff board enclosed (to protect the item) and it was too good to throw away, so I have turned in to a plaque.
I covered the very stiff, dense card in white acrylic paint and then over stamped on it whilst it was still tacky/wet to create my background. I then rubbed in some glimmer mist using a cotton wool ball to create a subtle shadow. You can see a little bit of my background in the photo below.
I then used my stamp slab to create a background on a piece of cream card and cut a frame out of it and inked the edges. I have kept the middle section for a future project. I then used a flower die cut off on a tag from a new pair of jeans and layered this with a heart (using the heart stamp slab stamp) and that brilliant phrase.
I found several metal embellishments in my "must use one day" box and as I only had one flower, I cut it in half so it looks like I have used 2 on my project!
I have had this beautiful Petaloo flower for eons and it was just what I needed to finish my project. The butterflies are made using the butterfly slab stamp, over stamped with a different Studio 12 phrase, and then layered on to a further die cut butterfly. My plaque was finished with some corners, tea roses and gems.
