Created Byhand Challenge - Tyvek



The current challenge on the Created Byhand blog is to use tyvek. I cut a piece of tyvek a couple inches larger on all sides than this saying stamp from Quietfire design, colored the tyvek with Colorbox chalk inks and stamped the saying with Stazon ink. I then layed an acrylic block over the saying and used a heat tool on the rest of the tyvek, removed the acrylic block and carefully added some heat to the center to help things lay better. I really had to work with the piece to get it to lay ok and still be able to read the words but I think it was worth the fiddling. Layered the piece onto Bazzill cardstock and added skeleton leaves (natural and copper) and paper flowers sponged with chalk ink and brads added to the centers.
