Good morning, it's challenge time over at We Love 2 Create and we've got an Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes theme so it's a nice easy one for you to play along. As always we've got some lovely crafty goodies for our lucky winner, thanks to our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands.
I've had this box for ages, it was a gift box for a watch I received ages ago and it's been gathering dust for I thought I'd give it a bit of a makeover. I began with a coat of white gesso and then applied dictionary paper with matte gel medium. Once that was dry I coloured it with my PanPastels, you can find links to the colours I've used at the end of this post.
The focal image is from the Stampman, I stamped it on tissue paper with versamark and embossed with gold EP and applied it to my box with Matte gel medium. To give the wings a bit of extra sparkle I stamped the image on self adhesive sparkly acetate and applied PanPastels to the back of the acetate, you can see the effect a little better in this pic.
I added some shadows with Paynes Grey PanPastels and then stamped some words here and there with Memento Teal Zeal ink. I've added some embellishments that came in my monthly treat from Craft Box and a little lace and some faux gold pearls to the side of the book box.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
A beautiful mess: anything goes
Craft Rocket: Favourite colour combo
Crafty Catz: Add lace
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Fab'n'Funky: Winged things
Frilly and Funkie: It's not easy being green
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers: E is for embossing
Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again
