Wooden icons are ideal to paint, cut, and alter - there's much fun to be had if you think outside the box! I've created this vintage Victorian-feel card using icons from the Cigar Box Secrets collection, along with a variety of SIIC gems. They add beautiful shimmer and colour to any project, especially at Christmas!
To start off with a sheet of paper from the Coffee Break 6x6 pad and used Distress Ink (Peeled Paint) to colour it, layering vintage feel papers.
The frame is backed with an assortment of SIIC, and I've also used them as flower centres. Aren't they just stunning?!
The fab silhouette has been painted black and edged with white so it stood out, whilst I cut a wooden crown up to fit on top of the frame. How versatile are they?!
Hopefully you'll be inspired to join in!
