I fell in love with her baby blocks, plus, we tend to have construction type items sitting in our garage.
So, I asked Lance to cut some wood pieces from a 2" x 4" board:
- 1 piece - 2 1/2" x 4"
- 1 piece - 5 1/2 " x 2 1/2"
- 1 piece - 5 1/2" x 1 1/2"
I then painted them with "Crimson" colored craft paint using a foam brush. I applied 3 applications.
NaptimeCrafting used Distressing ink for the edges; however, I am not much of a stamper so I did not have this. (And, I didn't feel like going to the store at midnight.) So I improvised with brown craft paint and blended it with some of the crimson paint. I applied to the edges using a smaller foam brush.
I designed Emerson's name and statistics using Sure Cuts A Lot 2.0 and cut Oracal 651 White Vinyl. I applied to the wood blocks. The small dots were applied using the tip of a brand new pencil eraser in 2 different colors.
Here's the final product:
