Shabby Plaque

It's time again for another Altered Art Challenge over at Altered part of their design team I decided to make a Vintage/Shabby Chic Plaque from some cardboard.

I used some cardboard from my printers box, stripped the front layer down to reveal the corrugation.
Then I used white acrylic paint and swiped it across the cardboard.

The image was a freebie which I printed off and mounted on card....then I added layers of fabric and lace on to the plaque.
For decoration I added the creamy seed pods, ribbon bows and bead trim, then added the mounted image.
The hanging piece is actually from a paper carrier bag, its not string, more like twisted paper to look like cord, just perfect for what I needed...I twisted some raffia around the handle for effect.
This pretty plaque measures 6" x 8" and is now hanging on my wardrobe door.
Just to remind you that the challenge is HERE....looking forward to seeing you over there.
