Hello there! Hope you are fit and well and if not here's a hug! Hope that might help! Its the last day of half term today so I'm busy frantically trying to get everything in place - time is always a premium when the kiddies are off on their holidays. And we're off on a jolly to Bristol next week too - from Weds to Saturday - really excited about that!
Before \I show you todays post I must tell you about my candy winner - I failed miserably to take a copy of the image of the mr random but my numbers were 1 -27 and the comment was number three which is hazelsbasketsofjoy! So Hazel - if you could email me your address I'll get the goodies in the post to you ASAP. I have another smaller candy that I didn't advertise too so I put the numbers in again and it came out with the number 16 - stampinginpink Karen. So Karen - I think I have your address but if you could email me then I won't have to look hard!!! Hope that lifts your day ladies!!!
Onto todays post. I've altered a small box (measures about 5" by 6") and will put some goodies in it for my mil for Christmas.
First of all I painted the box with gesso then blue acrylic paint. Next I used versa mark and added the snowflakes stamps and then added sparkling snow wow powders and heat set. Next I did the same with a small star stamp and then added silver wow powders and heat set. Then I added a layer of spray and sparkle from Crafters Companion the silver one. Whilst that dried I stamped the Crafty Individuals image with black archival and heat set before distressing with salty ocean DI. I added the lace around the back of the image then added this to the top of the box. Then I used my mums heartfelt creations die and poinsettia stamp and made the flowers - the image was stamped with versamark and heat set with wow powders in silver. I stuck the flowers on and added the gems - then added a little frantage and finally the sentiment.
I'd like to enter this box into the following challenges:
