The project I'm sharing with you is a box and card I made for a friend who left work recently. The colours I've used reflect the colour that she likes to wear. I made the box and then stamped the top panel separately using a Wendy Vecchi background stamp, the sentiment is also a Wendy Vecchi stamp.
The butterflies are by The Stamp Man and I dyed some seam binding with Distress re-inkers to match and added a Type Charm.
For the card I started with the background and stamped it using one of my favourite Wendy Vecchi text background stamps and then stamped over that with a Katzelkraft flower stamp. I watercoloured the flowers using Distress Inks. The embossed panel is made using a Tim Holtz EF, the card was coloured using Shabby Shutters Distress Stains. The text panel is a piece from an old book that's had DI blended around it.
I used the Vintage Market die for the letters, which I've inked with DI and covered with Glossy Accents. They're mounted on a panel that's been stamped with the same stamp as the cover of the box. The frame has been made from black glossy card stock and Nestabilities. The swirls are cut using the Mini Flourish die and the butterflies with the Mini Butterfly die. The rose is made using the PaperArtsy Scalloped flower die, I prefer this die for making roses as it has a lovely shaped petal. I cut the flower from card that I'd used Shabby Shutters Distress Stains on and then when I'd made the rose I used my melt pot to make it a porcelain flower. The two leaves are also made using a PaperArtsy die and I've put them through an EF to add the lines. Some more dyed seam binding with some black ribbon and that's it !
