Crafty Emblies New Challenge 

Well it is now my 2nd DT entry for Crafty Emblies www.crafty-emblies.org and this months theme was WINGS .... I decided as it was near valentines day I had to do something with a heart and i just HAD to do it pink : -)  sorry all you pink haters ....

I used a box from my stash and painted it white first then gave it a 2nd coat of metallic pink paint (from Tesco in the kids art section ... they have loads of 'colour's and its REALLY nice and cheap ) 


I covered the lid with some lace from my stash and edged it with 2 different types of lace and some Washi tape, then I moved on to the heart which was painted pink then I stamped some script on to it then, dry brushed white over the top.  I gave the wings (from Crafty-emblies ) a light brushing of white paint and then glued it all onto the lid.
I wanted the box to look like it had to be opened with a key so used the key hole (Crafty-emblies) at the front and used 2 of the tiny 'screw' brads (Tim Holtz) in the holes on the lock .  then to finish it off I made a small dangly charm to hold the key (from Crafty-Emblies ) which is hanging from a chain ...
The base of the box was done in the same way as the heart ..

Crafty-Emblies ...www.crafty-emblies.org are now also doing a Paper craft challenge too ... so why not enter both challenges OR which ever one takes your fancy and enter .... check out the website and blog for more details ...
