Craft-Room challenge. Guess it was a bit quieter due to the Summer Holidays thank you to everyone who joined in.
This time our theme has been chosen by Maria, her excellent choice is home decor. Make, alter, distress, re-cycle anything you want so long as it can be used in some way as home decor.
For the chalk board this started with a child's blackboard from The Works. Painted the wood frame red with a Memento ink pad after first covering the blackboard. The ink needs time to dry on the wood so left it over night. The frame was then stamped with Tanda stamps from their Art Deco sets, the roses on the rose border were highlighted with Glossy Accents. While that was going off some red metal was cut to fit inside the frame and trimmed. Using stayzon more Tanda Stamp images stamped onto the metal and then using TSS tools traced the design and puffed the images from behind. Metal stuck to the blackboard with redline tape. Some imitation roses attached at the top with some black fibers echo the rose border.
If you look you probably have something at home that you might like to revamp it would be lovely if sometime in the next fortnight you gave it a new lease of life and shared it with us at Craft-Room challenge. If you display the Craft-Room shop logo and a link you will be entered in the random draw to win £10 to spend at the shop. All the Tanda Stamps used and the inks are available from the Craft-Room.
