Good morning lovelies! I do hope you are well and I want to thank you for all of your wonderful comments yesterday - I was very pleased with my box but even more so after your kind words so thankyou very much!
I've got another box to share with you on this day - the first day of the holidays for my two little munchkins. Its a hankie box and I made it whilst at my mums - and she has claimed it so she must like it!!!
I started with a black box from the MDF man and painted it with gesso then with orange pebeo acrylic paint. Once dry I added the crafty individuals stencil onto each side and the top and used black dreamweaver embossing paste through the stencil. This process was done it batches leaving it to dry between sides. Once this was done I used distress inks (spiced marmalade, scattered straw, walnut stain) to create a background and then used the Crafty Individuals create a meadow stamp set to add pictures to the squares I had cut out of the backround. I stuck these into the pattern then stamped the heartfelt creations stamp firstly with versamark on black card and added copper kettle embossing powder. Secondly with versa on the remaining background paper and black embossing powder. Then I used the die to cut these out and made flowers to sit on the top of the box.
I'd like to enter this box into the following challenges:
