Hi everyone I am so thrilled to be participating in the Ann Butler and Walnut Hollow blog hop today.
The Walnut Hollow product I am working with is the 11" x 11" Rustic Pallet. It has so many possibilities!!!
I lightly white washed the pallet with yellow paint. Since I really wanted a white washed appearance, I spritzed it with a lot of water as I painted. Once dry, I added some Earth Safe Finishes - Iridiscents to the top three panels, applying it with my fingers. Spritzing with water allowed it to be a little more fluid.
Using burlap from DCWV, I die cut the 2 banner layers using Sizzix dies and added brads to hold the banners together. The Kellycraft 2" Flourish ABCs were stamped with ColorBox Berry Ink and then heat set with Clearsnap Opalescent Embossing Powder. Once the letters cooled, they were fussy cut and added to the banner.
Along the bottom panel, I painted some ColorBox Limelight Ink which I mixed with water. When dry, a striped stamp from Ann Butler's acrylic stamps from Kellycraft was stamped along the bottom twice to give the illusion of grass.
Using another Sizzix die, I cut the tree trunk in brown cardstock and then fussy cut the tree top from burlap. I then used a stamp from Ann Butler's 2" Doily Picnic stamp set from Unity, stamping it on the tree top in Limelight and Tangerine Inks to give the tree some dimension.
The fence was cut with my Cricut Expression. Before adhering, I held it in place and stamped the leaves from Ann Butler's 1" Leaves All Over stamp set on and about the fence. The fence was then added with foam adhesives for dimension.
I had so much fun working on this pallet and it looks amazing hanging in my room.
