CAS Plaque


Over on the PA blog Joanne Wardle has made a guest appearance with a clean and simple card which you can see here.  I took the same approach but instead of a card, painted an mdf plaque and as you know, I don't do flowers, so chose the image off the PA I&D one penny #2 plate.  I used Irish cream fresco paint for the background, I stamped the PA mini bricks in French roast and the splodges in a mix of mocha mousse and little black dress.

I found it really hard not to do anything else to it, but now I've left it and gone back to it, I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Love your plaque Sam! Haven't seen any PA posts yet this week but I think I'm going to like Joanne's project judging by yours and Helen's gorgeous pieces. The stamps you have used are very effective in the background and I love the wings girl. The subtle colours are fab!

Hugs

So subtle and beautiful - well-restrained of you... it really doesn't need anything else - it speaks just as it is.
