Life's Direction in combination with a sentiment from Right On Target and got to work making something that I'll call barn board pallet art! I'm smitten with all of the pallet art I've been seeing over at Pinterest and knew I had to translate my MFT stamps and Die-namics into something on an A2 scale!
Sunflower Die-namics cut from Lemon Drop and Hot Fudge card stock. The sentiment is stamped in Hot Fudge ink, and the Electric Red card base is stamped randomly with the chicken wire stamp from Distressed Backgrounds in Steel Blue ink.
Here is how I made the barn boards from Kraft card stock, Western Backgrounds, Steel Blue ink and the Chalkboard Frame Builder Die-namics.
1. Stamp wood grain stamp from Western Backgrounds onto piece of Kraft card stock in Steel Blue ink (I stamped off once).Life's Direction in watermark ink with a birthday sentiment from LLD Playlist stamped on a Die-namics Sentiment Strips 2 (new this release).
2. Stamp and emboss image from Life's Direction (I used the rooster, but I can't wait to use the cow, pig and horse, too).
3. Tape two longest Chalkboard Frame Builder pieces together and start die-cutting your stamped Kraft layer, placing the tethered CFB pieces directly below your previous cut. You'll get a tiny sliver between the two Die-namics but I think it adds to the authentic, haphazard barn board look that is wabi-sabi in my book!
4. Carefully piece all 'barn boards' together and adhere with a slightly smaller piece of card stock to the back to hold it all together and give it more stability. I also trimmed my edges to the size I needed and distressed the edges by pulling and bending random edges.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit today and come back in the morning for Teasers Day 2!
