Studio 490 Cake Stand!

Well what can I say...Saw Hels Demo-ing these on C=C and just HAD to get some! I LOVE these Wendy Vecchi Art Parts !!

This one is the " Cake Stand"! And it's adorable! I got a couple of packets of these because I am going to use them as Christmas gifts! But I have only completed the one at the moment and it's for my mum!

Here's how this was put together... The top and base were coloured with Wild Honey Distress stain, over stamped with the  Dots background stamp from The Artistic Stamper in Fired Brick Distress ink. I also distressed the edges in the same colour to finish it off, put all that aside to dry and then decorated the 'leg' for the stand. Now this is actually a wooden bobbin from a set of five again from The Artistic Stamper.  The tiny little bobbin on the top is from the same pack but this time I gilded it! looks cute too lol!

The flowers were done using The Flower Power Theme Plate  Again using Wild Honey Distress Stain and Fired Brick Distress ink, over stamped with the The Chicken Wire Background  I also used that stamp on the mannequin which is actually an Alterations Die cut, the 'skirt' was made using the leaves from The Tick Tock Flowers  I just added a piece of coloured ribbon and a bow to act as a 'waistban'. The Dragon fly is a peel off stuck to some acetate cut out and then alcohol inked from behind!

On thew base I stuck a die cut bobbin which I distressed, wrapped some ribbon around and then added a couple of  fancy pis! I just added a couple of buttons that I had in my stash just to finish it all off!

Thrilled to bits with the way this has turned out and I seriously hope the others will be as good! I have an 'Art' theme and something for my mother in law...haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do yet so if  I leave hers to last hopefully by then I will have made up my mind! lol.

Thank for dropping by

Take care
