Crafty-Emblies challenge 


Hi everyone ... the new Crafty-Emblies new challenge has gone live .... and just incase you didn't know the challenge is open to Altered Art projects AND paper-craft and card makers too .... a fabulous opportunity for everyone to enter....  So if you fancy the chance to win Crafty-Emblies goodies then pop over now ... there is also a "Anything Goes" theme on a permanent basis....   

OH and even MORE good news ... Crafty-Emblies are celebrating the purchase of their NEW machine and are offering a 25% discount on all orders till the end of the week so hurry on over ..

Ok so what did I make .....
I decorated this box for my friend, who's birthday was this weekend just gone .... she likes Shabby Chic but always complains that she can't do it ... so I did my version of Shabby Chic for her .... I pained it white first the pained it with some gold paint, then dry brushed white over the top .... The Crafty-Emblies I  chose to use were  the 'love birds' and the flowers ....

 I LOVE how versatile these little birds are and the flowers are great to put on nearly everything ... I dry brushed them all with white paint to give a Shabby look to them .... I also layered the flowers on top of each other ... all the flower shapes work so well together so layering then like this is easy.... 

Lastly I made a small flower from lace and added some small ribbon to it ... and then added punched out leaves and small paper roses ...  


Hope you like it :)  and I hope my friend does too ..


Thanks for stopping by
