Here we are, March already, and that means that there are only a few weeks of Sale-A-Bration left. It’s been a super busy season this time around, with some products selling out much sooner than expected. It’s a good thing that Stampin’ Up! ® were on the ball with a second release – and have just added some more items to the list of what you can get for free with a qualifying purchase! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, hop over to my online shop & take a look!)
Why am I banging on about it? Well, today’s project was made using one of the free (yes, FREE) stamp sets form Sale-A-Bration.
A few years ago we visited a wonderful museum at Blist’s Hill, near Telford, and saw this rather wonderful advertisement. (My husband found it funny for some reason!)
It was in my mind when I made the card. The original was an enamel sign – but I wanted it to look as if it were painted on weathered wood. Do you think it worked?
Here’s how I made it.
This was one of those times when I got halfway through making the card and decided I didn’t like it – but I just kept going! In the end I was quite pleased with the result. My crafty roots are in altered art/distressed/vintage and it was fun to get back to the grungy/distressed sort of crafting. Hope you enjoyed the project.
Meanwhile, on to the next!
