Commissioned plaque


Our challenge at Crafty Ribbons this fortnight is monochrome. I had a plaque to make for a 20th Wedding Anniversary and I am pleased to say the lady who ordered it was delighted with it.
MDF hearts - 150mm and 50mm MDF Craft Supplies
Paper - LOTV Country Lady
Ribbon and lace - Crafty Ribbons
Dies - Spellbinders hearts
Flowers - Wild Orchid
Other - wooden birds

I tried something new on the small wooden hearts. I painted them with a Zig woodcraft pen, then used a white Wink of Stella pen and finally vintage photo distress ink.

Challenges
Fussy and Fancy shabby fun bingo (Die cuts (hearts), frills or lace (lace), verging on romantic (hearts), shaped or square (heart))
Simon Says Monday Take a leap into the unknown (technique on wooden hearts) 
Creative Inspirations pretty projects 
Simon Says touchy feely (add texture)
