Off The Page Project

Ciao Amici! Yes I'm still in Europe travelling with a friend, but I'm popping in to share a project I made for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

As always. the theme is 'Anything Goes' or if you want more of a challenge you can take up the option which is to 'Make Anything But a Card'.  Here is what I created...

I tend to keep most of my creations fairly CAS(clean and simple), so I haven't added too many layers. I began with a Tim Holtz Ideology Mini Clipboard and removed the screws to cover it with the Kaisercraft DP. I sanded and inked the edges to give it an aged look. Next I die cut the next layer and glued it in place and put the clipboard back together. I stamped the image with Zig Markers and distress inks and used a wet brush to blend. I then fussy cut, sponged the edges and adhered to the board.  To finish I added the twine and bells. 

You can see more inspiration at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog and I hope you'll play along. Don't forget you have the chance to win a prize and possibly be a Guest Designer.
