The current challenge at ABAC is Dear Old Dad or something Masculine - a very fitting challenge given today's celebration of Fathers. Click the link HERE to go to the challenge post and some lovely pieces from the Design Team and HERE to go to today's Design Team pieces. You will no doubt have made your Father's Day pieces by now but there are some lovely ideas for presents (thinking ahead to birthday's as well!).
Sadly my father is no longer with us but I think he would have liked this vintage hanging.
I used the Sissix Ornamental Die to cut a piece of mountboard which I then embossed with a (favourite!) Sissix embossing folder. I covered it all with gesso and then sprayed it with some home made sprays made from Vintage Photo, Stormy Skies and Blue China Distress Re-inkers.
The colours looked lovely when wet but kept drying rather dull.
So I decided to cover it all with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. I didn't get a full coverage but I love the way it has gone into the grooves and missed here and there.
I rather like this chap from the Crafty Individuals Miniatures Book People and Places and they fit so perfectly in the frame from the Sissix Tag and Bookplate Die.
You still have another week to enter into the Challenge - anything with a masculine theme except of course a card!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are enjoying a lovely Sunday wherever you are and whoever you are with x
