Hope you are all well. Hopefully blogger has played nicely and published this post for me. We are away for the weekend visiting relatives and won't be back until later on today.
We have a lovely challenge going on at Imagination Crafts Challenges at the moment. Our theme is a nice easy one
Just upload a creation containing a butterfly/butterflies. Don't forget that if you use Imagination Crafts products you could win a £40 voucher to spend at Imagination Crafts.
Here is my mid way inspiration project.
As you can see I decided to alter a box that I had. My daughter received some toiletries in this lovely shaped acetate box at Christmas. I managed to retrieve the box from the bin as I thought it would come in handy one day. That day has now arrived lol.
For the box
I used the butterfly flourish stencil and sparkle medium from Imagination Crafts to stencil the acetate panels on the box. I only did three of the panels. The remaining panels I covered with some backing paper on the inside. The final thing that I did on the main box itself was to add some orange ribbon around the bottom.
For the lid
Now the top of the box was a lovely purple colour but I wanted it orange so I just stippled it with some acrylic paint. When that was dry I cut a piece of backing paper and stuck this to the top of the lid. I then used the stencil again with distress ink. Some pearl bling was added to the outside together with some sparkle detail on the butterflies bodies. The same orange ribbon was placed around the box lid and I added a little dragonfly on acetate that had been done with sparkle medium.
Thanks for popping by. To see more gorgeous creations and to enter the challenge just pop over to the Imagination Crafts Challenge blog. Looking forward to seeing all your butterfly creations.
