May Arts:: Art Anthology & Basically Bare


May Arts has teamed up with two fabulous companies: Art Anthology and Basically Bare and we are coming your way with a week long hop full of inspiration!


I have a clean and simple card today, my favorite kind to make1 I started with the cool, old fashioned bare chipboard key from Basically Bare then added Art Anthology's Lava Dimensional Medium, which is a perfect combination! Once the key dried, I tied May Art's Burlap String in Ivory (SM-09) around the key in a bow and adhered behind the key a strip of May Art's 4" Wired Burlap in Natural (398-4-02) I then adhered this piece to a card base stamped with a sentiment and will be sending it over to my cousin who just bought a new home!

I really love the mixings of the products from these three companies, it is a match made in heaven! I hope you find yourself inspired too.

Hi Karen! I love this card! The burlap says "hard work" and the key "unlocking possibilities". What could be better?! You are so inspiring! Hugs!

So many possibilities of what to use. Always think before I throw some things away if I can use somehow.
