Hello my lovelies, its a busy weekend of blogging for me and this post is for our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the lovely Dot has chosen our theme which is 'Your Favourite Technique'. As always we have a fab prize for a $20 voucher up for grabs from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft! We especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the format of the theme too.
Well I've combined 3 of my favourite techniques for this project, playing with stencils and mediums, colouring and altering stuff from the mountain of 'goodies' waiting to be decorated lol.
This little gift box started life as a box of maltesters (yum). I began with a coat of Maimeri Gesso and then some cream emulsion paint. Once that was dry I distressed the edges with shabby shutters distressed ink and added a touch of treasure gold too. I took a sheet of a4 ivory card and got to work with an Imaginations Crafts stencil and Maimeri Light Modelling Paste coloured with shabby shutters distress reinker.
Once that was dry I cut it up to cover the box, distressing the edges with more distress ink and my craft kniife. I stamped a corner stamp from Clarity in the corners of the box using gold stazon.
The image is one of my favourites from Flonzcraft, she's called 'Girl on a Windy Hill' and she's been coloured with Graph'It Markers and die cut with a sizzix oval die and edges with pearl trim. I've used a spellbinders die cut and seam binding ribbon to make a closure for the box and added some glittered paper flowers and a tiny die cut butterfly.
