Oh What a Lonely Girl

June's theme over at Our Creative Corner is a recipe.  There are 3 lists and you have to use at least one ingredient from each list.

I chose A - ribbon, B - mdf, C - paint and I also used ink too.

The base is one of the mdf plaques I got last week from the MDF Man at the Lincoln show.  I painted it with nougat, stone, Irish cream and chocolate pudding fresco paints.  Stamped the Dina, Lonely Girl image in timber brown stazon. Masked her off and used the timber brown for the background images too but just swiped it over the stamps so as not to pick up as much ink as I wanted the main image to be bolder. I know it looks black on the photo, but it really isn't!!

And as I was looking through my ribbons the dark brown loopy one fell along side the plaque and I quite liked the look of it, so I set about attaching it!!!  I also used a piece of ribbon for the hanger.

Love your plaque - gorgeous blended neutrals in your painty background, and the darker frame works so well. Fabulous stamping! Lovely to have you play along at Our Creative Corner.

Now this is one I would love to see irl Sam. It looks wonderful in 2D but I bet that paint work looks amazing when you really get up close. The ribbon edge is a very clever idea too and you're right, it works so well. Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner with this. Hugs, Jenny x

Lovely muted shades on this one Sam. Love that Dina image and the stamping layers in the background are great. The loopy ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

That background is amazing Sam - I love that layered, painty look. Wonderful stamping and your ribbon 'frame' sets everything off so well.
Glad you played along with us.
