Shabby Chic?

The new challenge has started at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme for the pink team this month is Shabby Chic/Vintage, now to me those two sorta go together!
For my project I made a Memories Box for a dear friend who is in need of some support and a memories box can lift someone when they are down so I am hopeful.
For the box I used a basic wood box from the Works they have a great range of wood blanks at such reasonable prices.
I used Color Arte Opal Rose paint for the base and sponged with some mica powder to get the background effect

I used a mask with some texture paste across the corner, The letters are die cuts that have been loaded with. old gold texture paste the heart, corners and key are from Ellapu's wonderful store where she has some amazing embellishments at such good prices, I filled the heart with liquid glass to give it more height, all the other embellishments are from Craftbox that I subscribe to every month for some fabulous crafty bits!
These are some other view of the sides

The inside of the box was painted with Rose Gold Color Arte paint and the letters die cut to finish

So I hope you will all join us for this great challenge and show us your shabby chic or vintage projects - can't wait to see them!

This weeks Colour Challenge at the Outlawz was chosen by AJ and is the most amazing inspirational picture - the more you look at it the more you see!

Now I saw books and I love books I also so magic and thought of a digi I have had for ages that I have been waiting to use by Fabrika Fantasy, the Wise Dragon and heres what I made

It is actually a card but does give the illusion of being a book! I coloured the image with Copics and colour pencils.

Do join us at the Outlawz for this fun challenge we'd love to see what you come up with!

I will enter it into the Fabrika Fantasy Challenge blog - their first challenge and its anything goes.

A Baby Boy!

A colleague has just become the proud father of a little boy - who arrived 5 weeks early! As I always make a card for births (its become a bit of a tradition) I decided to use this gorgeous baby from Sugar Nellie, I do think it is the most delicious little baby ever!
I coloured the image with Copics and used some pretty die cuts to frame it along with the diecut letters and numbers.

I thought it would be nice to enter this into the Sugar Bowl challenge!

Miss Daisy Guest Designer!

This month I have the honour of being guest designer for Miss Daisy Stamps on their Facebook Group! As GD I got to choose this month's challenge and my choice was shaped cards - I thought this could be fun for everyone to have a play with all the different types of cards that can be made. I have used the digi "Sweet Blossom" for my card and I used a die cut for my shape.
As its August and supposed to be high summer I went with some lovely summery colours for my project

I coloured the image with copics and used some sweet background paper from Craft Asylum. The die cuts are from Joanna Sheen, Heartfelt Creations, Tattered Lace and Spellbinders.

I hope you will come over and play with us this month we'd love to see your projects!
