I am in such a good mood today - it's the first day of the Summer holidays for me - no work until September - woohoo!! I am planning on settling back and doing a bit of crafting later, the only snag is my craft area looks like a bombsite and I haven't seen more than 6 inches of my desk for the last fortnight!!!! Will have to get myself organised after another cuppa!!
This weeks challenge over at CRAFT is
so get out those templates, scoring tools or ready mades and join us!!
We are sponsored by Toucan Scraps this time.
I got to play with this cute box from Angela called 'Hannahs wedding floral Box' which is a bargain and really quick to make!!
I love yellow and for some reason as soon as I saw the shape of the box made up, I immediately thought of using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps on it - Bah Quet.
The little sheep has been coloured with promarkers and the face has been stamped twice and cut out and mounted on foam pads to give it a bit of depth. Ovals cut out with nesties but somehow a scalloped oval nestie didn't look quite right so I went for an oversized Heidi Swapp flower for a background frame instead!
I added a bit of wild honey distress ink to the edges for a bit more definition, a few butterfly gems and some green and yellow ribbons to tie it shut.
I'm really quite pleased with the finished result, especially considering how quick it was to make!! Thanks for looking and please head over to the main CRAFT blog to see the rest of the DT's lovely creations!
