Hello folks, I hope you're all enjoying the Christmas and New Year break. I've got 9 days off work now so hopefully lots of time for crafting :-)
Back to business as we've got a fab new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'Surprise Us'. Our lovely teamie Joanna suggested that we should all make a project to send to one of our DT sisters so next week I'll be posting my project out to ...... nope not telling, that would spoil the surprise lol.
I've altered a little board book box using acrylic paint to create a crackle background, and adding lots of gold embossing. I then made a panel using alcohol inks (wild plum, cranberrry and snow cap) which I stamped with a gorgeous Chocolate Baroque flower stamp and embossed with Gilded Ivory EP. ?Unfortunately my photography skills don't get any better so the photos are pretty rubbish. I added some lace, ribbon and little flowers (from The Funkie Junkie boutique) I made a little brooch to go in the box, using crinoline fabric coloured with the same alcohol inks and white netting, I added a button and stiched some crystals and seed beads around the button centre. Here's another pic which is perhaps slighly better, or maybe not lol.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T: Not a card
Live and Love Crafts: anything but a card
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Try it on Tuesday: Lucky Dip (Stamped image and ribbon)
As always our challenge is sponsored by the lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts with a voucher for the lucky winner so don't miss out! Don't forget though, we're a rubber stamping challenge so no digi stamps allowed :-)
Thanks for popping by today, have a lovely Sunday. If you have time grab a coffee and pop over to visit my DT sisters as they have really come up with some gorgeous creations this time
