Welcome to the 3rd annual Handmade Holiday’s Blog Hop! Aren’t handmade gifts the best?
I started with the wooden bistro sign which I lightly sanded and applied a light coat of acrylic paint.
Next I moved on to the Magic stamp. Using a heat gun and block of wood I created a wood grain stamp that I transferred to the bistro sign. The grain was then laid over the pre painted board using the Surfacez Caribbean ink. After this step, I applied torn tissue paper with decoupage for a light, transparent texture.
The lettering was also done using theSurfacez ink.
Next, the ampersand was painted and text applied, followed by smalll tack nails to attach. Lastly, a top coat of Ice Resin was applied to seal the deal!
Hope your Holidays are creative ones!
