Home is where the plaque is: For Calico Crafts
I made this simple shabby chic (and may I say , in rather muted colours for me) "home plaque".
I used the vasaline (petroleum jelly) technique to stop the top white coat of paint from adhering to the whole plaque and to add some extra age worn look, I used an Andy Skinner crackle stamp over the white in a sympathetic colour toned ink to the paint. the trees and house were coloured with versamagic chalk inks.
I couldnt decide what to use as a background for the photo, so I took two... one very "pretty" garden look, and one shabby and distressed paintwork look.
Supplies used from calico Crafts:
