Today I've got something to show you that I've made for me ..... its a money box to help me save up for some new trainers - running shoes are around £100 for a decent pair so it will take a while before I get them!!! But if money is in my bank it disappears onto craft - lol!!!!! I've used two stamp sets from chocolatebaroque(Live out -Loud--Fly-Away-with-Me) to make this plus a script stamp from crafty individuals and a swirl stamp from sheena douglass.
The box is from the MDF man and I started the process by painting with gesso and then antique white acrylic paint. Next I painted the roof and added the tiles with a pen. Then I stamped the script and left everything to dry.
Whilst everything was drying I used distress inks (forest moss, shabby chic, crushed olive, )on some plain paper - then stamped and fussy cut the birds and stamped and cut the saying.
I thought this saying was particularly appropriate as when I'm running I often think about stuff - craft or otherwise. Once the birds were sorted I did the scrolls by stamping in versamark and heat setting with holly green WOW powders. Finally I made the flowers using the Hels Sheridan method with the 6 petaled flower and then dipped them in the melt pot to give them a faux porcelain appearance.
Finally I assembled everything. I'm very pleased with this - I do hope you like it too!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Our Creative corner ourcreativecorner6- shopping our sins - these bird sets from choc baroque were bought over a year ago and this is the first time some of the stamps on the sets have been used!
