How do you say "wiseacre" in French?

I am going through my stash like you wouldn't believe! Because we're fast approaching Brag Monday over at The Graphics Fairy, I knew I would use one of her images this time.  I wanted to make something to hang on the door to my bathroom, so this label was perfect.



Here is some chipboard that I had.  I think it was originally meant to be part of a frame, but I'm a rebel so...

I painted it with white acrylic paint and dried it with my heat tool because I had no patience whatsoever.  Seriously-who has time to watch paint dry? Not me!

I knew I wanted to cover the chipboard with the label. First,  I took my embossing stamp and covered the entire image and then coated it with clear embossing powder. I melted it all with my heat tool, and then cut it out.



I used Mod Podge to adhere it to the chipboard. I embellished it with texture paint in green, and Stickles.  I used tiny eyelets to fill in the hole punches, and just used plain twine to hang it.



Dolly asked me if the label meant "stay out of my bathroom" in French.  Cute, isn't she?




I wouldn't kid you about linking here:

  6. That is lovely! You are rocking the stash busting! The eyelets are a perfect touch.

    That JoAnn chick showed up in my paper again yesterday. She's persistent that one, but I told her to hit the road. I did watch her go and waved goodbye :(
