*29 Shabby Chic!

I spotted a strip of corrugated card and decided to go for a shabby chic hanging with browns and blues for my next Poinsettia project.

The base is corrugated card sprayed with Glorious Gold Ink in a Bottle and the top layer is another piece painted roughly with white acrylic paint and edged with gold acrylic. I've used various stamps on this - the Enjoy What You Do stamped in Sea Green Pigment Ink, the Walesby Flourish stamped in Midnight Pigment Ink and the Winter Garden Text stamped with gold acrylic paint. Obviously I've used the large Poinsettia stamp inked with Midnight Pigment Ink on card sprayed with Totally Turquoise Ink in a Bottle. I've just tied some ribbon round the card and finished with some string.

Don't just use the Poinsettia stamp for cards - they can make wall art too!   Check back later for more inspiration!
