JFF - Week 23 - Plastic / Acrylic


This weeks JFF is all about plastic and/or acrylic.  I chose to fuse black and white strips of plastic carrier bags together to create the background as above.


I embossed the umbrella man onto a white piece of card, swooshed over it with black soot distress ink.  Stamped the saying and die cut with a spellbinders label die.  Cut a small cog with the movers and shapers die in silver card.  Attached all to the plastics background with silicone glue and mounted the whole lot onto a piece of black card and added a piece of black hemp to hang.
