Wood Paneling and Beautiful Grunge by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope you are all keeping well.  Are you all ready for the big day?  Or are you like me - chasing your tail to try and get everything finished in time lol!  Ah well, no change from every year then ha ha.  I'm here to bring you my last post of 2019, featuring the beautiful CB stamps that were launched on last month's tv shows.

Wood Paneling.

For this project I have used a stamp from the new Chocolate Blocks stamps - O is for... , and letters from the Classic Alphabet Upper Case set, Versafine sepia ink, Distress Inks, clear EP, CB Seasonal Elements  stencil and a stencil from my stash.
I began with a piece of white card and stamped and embossed the 'O', using sepia ink and clear EP.  I did the same with the other letters to spell the word 'Wood'.  I painted the tree and hill with DIs and added another hill in the distance.

I used both stencils to add leaves  and a woodgrain pattern to the focal panel.  I then attached the panel to a dark brown base card.  

Beautiful Grunge.

This is another card but with a grungy, pretty, mixed media theme to it.  I have used stamps from the Butterfly Mind and Freedom Flower sets, black Versafine ink, clear EP, Koh-I-Noor paints and metalic copper acrylic paint from my stash.
I started with a piece of corrugated cardboard and peeled away the top paper layer in various places to add texture.

I used  DIs to stamp the grid strip  randomly over the cardboard then added the dots.  When the inks were dry I dabbed copper paint all along one edge and held the panel up to allow the paint to run and drip down the panel. 

I took some white card and stamped and embossed the film strip images using black ink and clear EP.  I used the paints to colour the images before cutting them out and attaching them to the background panel.  I repeated the last step with the sentiments then attached the whole completed panel to a white base card.

Thank you very much for dropping in today, and for all your support and lovely comments throughout the year, I really appreciate it, and so do my team mates!  

I'll be back with more craftiness in 2020, in the meantime I wish you all a wonderful Christmas a very Happy New Year!

  1. Two gorgeous cards Penny, beautiful colours and such interesting designs. I especially love what you did with the first so innovative and a really pretty result, and the second has lots to look at and butterflies are always a winner, especially when used by someone as adept as you. I love the copper acrylic drips, really lush. x

  2. Very artistic works, so clever both!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
