.....actually I arrived just over a year ago and managed to create it but haven't done anything since!!! Well, this is my first 'proper' post! It's all about a little box I altered to hold my Niece's gift card for her birthday. I gessoed a plain wooden box before attacking it with Pool and Sail Boat Blue Adirondack Dabbers. The Dragonfly from Stampers Anonymous Classics 1 was stamped in black StazOn, masked and over stamped with the Water Droplets in ultramarine StazOn. I then stamped the Dragonfly again onto acetate and coloured with 3 or 4 alcohol inks (can't remember how many - it was getting quite late by this time!!) before cutting him out and gluing to the stamped image before adding the little blue stick-ons.
The Water Droplets on the sides were inked in Broken China DI and heat embossed using a clear embossing powder to add a little texture and finally, the Ideology Word Band (Know in your Heart you are loved) painted in Salty Ocean DP and rubbed back to leave the colour in the etch was attached using Glossy Accents:
And the inside: ModPodge and 7Gypsies Tissue coloured with Distress Markers:
Well I hope you've enjoyed my little post! All I have to do now is find out how to link to whatever I need to link to, find out how to add the blogs I follow to my side bar, how to enter challenges and hope that someone does actually view this! Anyways, Thanks to Nick for taking the excellent photos. All the materials with the exception of the Water Droplets Stamp were purchased from The Artistic Stamper. The Water Droplet stamp is one of my favourites by Designs by Ryn - do visit her online shop for inspiration!
So until I next venture into the world of Blog it's Bye Bye from me!
