Wall Plaque

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

I have had a lovely morning crafting, I have more to do this afternoon, I am so happy to be playing.  I hope you are all having a good Friday.  I came home yesterday to be told that some of my fencing had been blown down, not impressed but hey ho, I can't do anything about it now.  I hope all of you have been safe while we have had the really bad gale force winds.

Just before I went to posting this I found out that I won the grand prize of £100 over at Crafty-Emblies.  This company makes the most fabulous wooden embellishments, boxes which is run by Judie and Paul.  Looks like I will be doing some spending tonight.  They also take any suggestions for new wooden embellishments too.

Anyway today I have a plaque I made for Ian at Kraftyhands.

The wooden frame I bought from Samuel Taylors
I have painted this with Pebeo paints in Grey
Using Deco Kut Metallics from Kraftyhands I have embossed using M-Bossabilities Kickin Rubber
I then used Spellbinders Labels 20 to cut out the first layer and added one of the toppers from the Motor Mania Die Cut Toppers.
Then using a mixture of Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets and Cogs die cut in silver and black Deco Kut.  To finish off I have added the bows and used screw brads to secure the bow.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
