Live your life


I really love making these plaques and they sell well too. I sold this one and two others on Monday plus some of the small ones. I also love this inspirational quote stamp from Inkylicious which I stamped with brown onto kraft and then distressed the edges. Hubby painted the plaque for me. The ribbon and lace is from Crafty Ribbons, scrim from B&Q. I bought some crackle accents about 18 months ago at a show and this is the first time I have used it and I love the effect. I painted the butterflies with Zig paint pens and then added the crackle accents. The feathers were cut with a Doohickey die and the hearts made with a Hobbycraft punch.

Wonderful plaque Marianne! A lovely design and the sentiment is fab. I'm not surprised that they sell well if they're all as lovely as this one. I wish my hubby would paint things for me, you lucky lady. Debra x

Hi Marianne,
18 months... and I used to think I was bad who left my stamps unused in a drawer for over a year :-) Well; better late than never! Lovely project; I've never seen this sentiment before, but it's great. Thanks for joining LLC for our Photo Inspiration Challenge.
