I made some altered art over the weekend and this is what I came up with first. Everything used to make this vintage piece of art is Stampin’ Up! except 2 items. The musical designer paper is a piece I’ve had for a long time and there’s one more thing. I bet you can’t guess what it is!!
The top and bottom are Crumb Cake Card Stock (120953). I stamped the little bird from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set (wood-124162; clear-124164) on the bottom in Chocolate Chip Ink (126979). The butterfly from the Creative Elements Stamp Set (wood-122645; clear-122647) was stamped on the back of another piece of old designer paper, cut out, and adhered with Glue Dots (103683). I added small Basic Pearls (119247) between its wings. The larger flowers were all made with Very Vanilla Card Stock (101650) and the tiny ones were punched out of Wisteria Wonder Card Stock (122922) using one of the flower punches from the Itty Bitty shapes Punch Pack (118309). I punched the leaves out of Certainly Celery Card Stock (105125) with the Bird Builder Punch (117191). They were all adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).
The top is made with 2 circles of Crumb Cake Card Stock, but the larger one is sponged all over with Chocolate Chip Ink. I stamped the sentiment from Language of Friendship Stamp Set (wood-122750; clear-122752) on the smaller circle and adhered more flowers, leaves and large Basic Pearls on it. The 2 circles were adhered together using Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430).
Have you guessed what mystery object I used, yet?
The whole thing is put together on an empty toilet paper roll!! Isn’t that amazing?? I’ve got this gorgeous, vintage art piece sitting out on display and no one will ever know it was made with an empty toilet paper tube, except me…and you, of course!
This is the 2nd time I’ve used an empty TP roller for altered art. When I have time, I’ll post the other one on here for you to see. It’s a great seller at craft shows. Do you think this will be?
