Hey, and thanks for stopping by today! I have not been blogging a lot lately, life is a bit hectic! But I am here today with a creation made for Crafty Cutting!! I have been a big fan of their products for ages and am delighted to be on their team along with some other super talented and lovely ladies!
For my first project I used one of the new 6*6 grey board frames to create a fun summer themed piece.
I used the ships wheel shape from the Crafty Cutting Nautical mdf embellishments. I inked it up in bronze. I then added some copper and verdigris embossing powders over it in random places for a old worn feel.
I then cut some nautical themed Graphic 45 papers to fit the front. I stamped a crackle stamp on these and embossed with the copper embossing powder. I also added some of the verdigris powder in random places. I cut a journaling card from the papers and added it inside the frame. I had to add a bit of paper underneath it to make sure the greyboard didn’t show through. I then added foam tape all around the edges. I made sure to leave it in from the edges a few millimeters as I wanted to wrap twine around the outer edges. I then put the frame together. I glued the steering wheel on the top of the frame opening. I love how it sits up above the image in behind. I added some starfish embellishments and some pearls and gems. I also cut some words and images from the papers and added these all on also. The beach rules notice and the main sentiment banner was also cut from the papers. You can see in the image below the twine I wrapped around the edge of the frame. It gives a lovely rustic and nautical look. Here is a view of the entire piece. There is some lovely shimmer off the copper embossing powder in real life!I hope you like my first design team project for Crafty Cutting, I am looking forward to sharing more with you all!
