Wild and Free – Cathy Cafun (Challenge Inspiration)

Hi everyone,
 
Cathy here today sharing my take on this month’s beautiful Mood Board, which inspired my shabby chic boho skull canvas, created using gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs.  You have until the end of the month to join in for your chance to win a $100 Prize Voucher from the Dusty Attic website!!

To create my background, I started by covering my canvas with a cream pp and then stamped around the edges to create a border.  I then stenciled the background with the beautiful Mandala Stencil and Metallic Lustre in Coral.
The Boho Skull and Mini Feather chipboard pieces were coated with White Frost Metallic Lustre and a touch of Coral Metallic Lustre on the ends of the feathers, which I attached to the Skull with DMC thread.
I was drawn to the shabby chic photos in the Mood Board and was inspired by the lace doily and pretty blooms and used fussy cut blossoms and a doily stamp to alter the Boho Skull
For the title I used the Mini Script and Teeny Weeny ABC chipboard sets, which I coated with White Frost Metallic Lustre, then lightly dabbed over with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide, let it sit for a minute, then wiped off, so it left just a hint of colour.  I used the Clear Gloss Varnish to adhere the title to my canvas.
