Hope you are all well and enjoying your week. I am super busy at the moment both at work and at home so apologies if I have not been round blogland. Hopefully I will be able to rectify this at the weekend.
Today is my turn to post some inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe. Our theme for this month is
Our fab sponsor is Delicious Doodles and the prize is 4 digi images of the winners choice. We are also having a DT call at the moment. So if you want to join a fab, friendly team just create something for this challenge and add DT after your name when you upload your creation. For full details just pop by The Crafting Cafe blog.
Now I do apologise as this post is rather photo heavy. Here is a photo of my finished project.
For the box lid I used a super image Pansy and Butterfly frame from Delicious Doodles as the main centrepiece. I coloured it with promarkers and cut it out before mounting onto some Tim Holtz papers that I have had for ages. I did some extra flowers and a butterfly to decoupage and add some dimension. The edging is some lovely blue ribbon that was in my stash. I added some metal corners and some gems around the frame.
For the inside I covered up all the little gaps in the sides with some card and got out my decopatch tissue papers and glue. This is so easy to do. You just spread the glue liberally, tear your decopatch papers into bits and stick it on. After you have glued on all the paper go over it with another coat of glue and leave to dry. Here is how it turned out after adding some foiled parchment to the bottom.
I just love the colours. I also covered the outer sides of the box with the Tim Holtz papers and added some of the blue ribbon and some lace.
Now I was intending keeping this and using it at a later date as a gift box for someone. As you can see I could not bear to part with it so added some lettering and it now houses my collection of pins.
Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations in our challenge at The Crafting Cafe. Would love for you to enter the DT call too.
