Home Swap

Lot to Do forum has moved to a new home so Zoe is hosting a swap with a home theme.My first piece is along the lines of a "sampler" but has no real stitching! The background paper (Brenda Pinnick I think) was glued to some mountboard with the lace sandwiched in the middle, added some faux stitching, chpboard letters, flower, ribbon & a butterfly then run ons for the "sweet home" sentiment.
The second is a very simple keyring with chipboard letters and the last a fridge magnet made from mountboard painted with green red & yellow acrylic paint then "squidged" (technical term there!) to create the background. I used gold embossing powder round the edges & gold rub on wax after stamping the script.Stamped the lion doorknocker (Crafty Individuals) and cut out, coloured & embossed .
