This was a challenge for me because Nikki Sivils isn’t what I’m used to working with. I decided to stay true to the theme of the paper collection I used. I worked with “Noah” and decided to make a name plaque for my friend’s son, Nolan.
I picked up an inexpensive wood plaque at a local craft store. I added some paint to it and matted some patterned paper to it. I also added some Punchinella for visual interest.
I decided to use a paper collage technique on the sun from the “Celestial” set of embellishment from Basically Bare. Once the glue was dry, I went over it using a ZIG PaintyFX pen.
For the tree, I used some PVC Punchinella (Gold Star Flower) from Gauche Alchemy as a mask and peeled back the top layer of the corrugated board for the trunk. The rhinestones are from a Gauche Alchemy color kit.
A fussy cut car with some bling and this plaque is done!
