For the background I had this piece of chipboard lying around.
Well doesn’t everybody have strange things laying around there craft rooms? I loved the texture of it, I have no idea where it came from but I do have more!
To decorate it I have Frantaged it. I first painted it with some watered down acrylic paint this held the embossing powder while I heated it. The embossing powder was a mix of bits including Pearlised Mica Fragments, Shaved Ice, Wild Plum, Aged Silver and regular Silver Embossing Powders.
the Chippies were decorated in the same powder mix, but I just pushed them into a watermark pad to wet them and added the powder. I heat them on the mat, but hold them in place with an Etch and Pierce tool. On some of the letters I just used the Shabby Pink embossing powder.
I took this foot outside the colours more true on this picture.
I think this shows the sparkle and texture that is on the hanging.
I screwed eyes into the sides and tied ribbon to finish off and for hanging.
