Happy New Year to you all. This is a scheduled post as we went to a friend's house last night for a party so was not sure how I would be feeling this morning lol.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts challenge blog. Our theme for this month is nice and easy for you all:
Now you can enter with any project you like but to qualify for the prize draw you need to use at least one Imagination Crafts product on your creation. Any project is eligible to be picked for the Top 3.
Here is my inspiration project for you.
Imagination Crafts Products Used
Cameo cog stencil
Black Stars sparkle medium
I decided to make a little gift box. I have several female birthdays coming up so thought this would be ideal for putting a gift into. I first of all made the box using plain white card and my scoring board. For the top of the box I used a lovely stencil Cameo Cog and used black stars sparkle medium on white glossy card. I did not add sparkle medium to the face. When the sparkle medium was nearly dry I went over it with some mica powders to change the colour of the medium. For the face I coloured through the stencil with black marker pen and then added glossy accents. I then coloured the background using some purple tone distress inks. Some lace was added round the edge of the image before mounting onto the box lid. For embellishments I added a flower, some feathers and a butterfly.
For the box sides I just wrapped some ribbon round, added a bow with a dazzler and some pearls.
Here is another view showing the depth and sides of the box.
