Braver Than You Believe!

Hi Crafters,

I love this quote stamp from Inkylicious and thought it was about time I used some of my stash of MDF plaques that have been waiting patiently to be decorated. So here it is...


I painted the plaque with Pebeo matt paint, cut the heart shape from LOTV dotty paper using a set of Xcut dies and heat embossed the glitter edging. Stamped the Inkylicious sentiment and heat embossed this also to make it stand out and added the spray of purple roses together with two die cut Joy Crafts flourishes. To hang it I added a length of frilly edged ribbon.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Deep Ocean Challenge - #127 Dots +/ Stripes
Aud Sentiments - #153 ATG
Brown Sugar - #195 ATG

Well a bit of crafting time for me today whilst it is sleeting outside, hopefully the sun will come out later as I had planned to get out and tidy up the garden today :/

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday!
