Hello everyone ! It's time for the next challenge over at Frilly and Funkie and this time it's my turn to choose the theme for the next 2 weeks.
So, without further a do, this is what we want to see Anything BUT a card with a twist, which is you must include somewhere to hide something, this could be a flap, an envelope, a pocket or even a gift box with something inside ! Let your imagination run wild ! And don't forget, have fun !
I decided to make a gift box which just perfect for a small pair of ear rings for one of my niece's who has just turned 21. I made the box from white card stock and then used acrylic paint to age it. I then made panels for the sides and top of the lid. I 've used Distress Inks and then stamped with Archival Sepia ink using stamps from the Artistic Outpost Birds of a Feather set. I glued a Filigree corner just around the edge so that the little card would slot into it. The sentiment is from a Wendy Vecchi stamp set. The gorgeous lace is crocheted lace from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I made the rose from a Paper Artsy Grunge Flower die and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Biscotti mist.
I made another little card to go inside the box along with the earrings and stamped it again using Archival Sepia ink.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the rest of the Frilly side of the DT's fabulous work !
