I forgot to post my dt project for the Fred She Said challenge yesterday.....oops, oh well better late than never.
The challenge this month is to make a 3d project for a loved one.
I needed to make something that was quick and easy because I had it in my head the it was a card I had to make and I left it till the last minute (nothing new there then lol), so I had a look through the templates I have on my computer already and found one for a little box. I got this template ages ago but I am sure it was from mirkwood.com, but I could be completely wrong lol.
I printed the template straight onto my designer paper which is from Stampin Up! as it is a nice thick paper so the box is sturdy enough without having to use cardstock then cover it, which saved me loads of time :)
The flowers I used are the one you get in the "Emma with sign" set. You do get 3 different sizes of flowers in the set but I just used one of the flowers and scaled it to the 2 sizes I wanted.
I saved time again with the flowers by printing them straight onto designer paper (again some from Stampin Up!), so I didn't have to colour them. Don't you just love digi's! :)
I then sprayed them with some glimmer mist for some sparkle, cut them out shaped them a bit and layered one on top of the other and used a spacer and pearl from my stash for the centre.
The top of this box doesn't close on it's own so I punched a hole at each side of the box and threaded some ribbon through and tied it in a bow to keep the box closed.
You can see the pattern on the flower a bit better here as it is a very light paper.
You have a whole month to join in with the challenge and the prize this month is another $2o gift certificate to spend in the FSS store!
Now my next project is for Digital Tuesday where I am the hostess this week and my challenge is to make anything but a card. So 2 posts for design teams today and no cards!!
Our sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl, and Kristy the owner also gave the design team an image to play with.
I saw it on Maria Bell's blog and she has loads of other templates and tutorials. I just wish I had came accross her blog sooner because it would of saved me so much time. Never mind I know where it is now :)
I cut the bag from blue shimmery cardstock then covered the front and back with some dp (sorry don't know who makes it), and cut a strip of the dp for a handle.
The image is the one I chose from Some Odd Girl and she is coloured with Promarkers. Isn't she a cutie?
I made this bag on the day I got my Promarkers so this is one of my first attempts at colouring with them, but I think I did ok. It's such a lovely image to colour :)
I didn't want to swamp the image with embelishments so I only added some lace around the bottom for her to stand on and a few little Prima flowers with tiny flower gems in the middle.
I really enjoyed making this one and I am quite pleased with how it turned out but I think it's time to make a card now lol.
Thanks for visiting, and as always I really appreciate your comments :)
