12 Days of............Day 8

Now we are on to Day 8 of the '12 Days of' Challenge. Not easy this one ! Supposed to depict '8 Maids a Milking'

I covered my 4 x 4 inch square of card with printed background paper from Basic Gray and tinted this with Distress in in worn lipstick with cut'n'dry foam. I then stamped a couple of text backgrounds in Versafine vintage sepia with a PaperArtsy stamp.

I then inked up an Invoke Arts circular stamp with onyx black Versafine ink onto a piece of the same background paper and trimmed this before mounting on some turquoise paper and trimming again. This was applied as shown with foam pads.

Next two self adhesive acrylic flourishes were applied (Dovecraft) and the letters stamped and coloured individually before applying onto the turquoise and trimming out.

The chipboard 8 was coloured with pink ink and backed again with the turquoise before sticking in place with glue stick. The words were applied as shown and the plate was finished.
