Well, it's my second attempt at this challenge - I forgot to include the most important element of the first attempt at this challenge - the Easter Decoration! LOL. Oh well, I've had fun playing :)
Here's my entry-
Products and materials used:
12 tongue depressors (that's what they look like LOL) in lightweight timber, cut to size, chomped ends with the Zutter corner rounder, painted base coat burnt umber, painted on a layer of Derivan Matisse Crackling Medium, then painted on a mixture of white & bisque (cream).
I then hot glued all pieces together, then took some twine and tied it around the long "timber" pieces.For the sign I used lightweight chipboard and cut a "tongue depressor" to size using my Tonic scissors for the post. Again, painted both the sign and the post - the base coat in burnt umber, then dry brushed the white/cream mixture over the brown base coat (I didn't use the crackling medium on this). Then took a wood-mounted stamp by Fern Gully Stamp (made in Australia), inked it up with Versamark, stamped it onto the sign, then used black superfine detail embossing powder by Stamp-It and heat set the sentiment. I hot glued the signpost to the sign.
Took some white "Shreds" by giftpackaging.com.au, glimmer misted it using Apple and Forest Moss.
I made a false bottom using white cardstock to give some height to the contents (I only had one pack of shreds), then added the easter eggs and finally set in the sign!
I went for the country-style look here with minimal "pretty" embellishments. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :)
