Shabby.

shabby

 

This is my latest design team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, it’s a re-purposed face cream selection box, which has had the shabby treatment, and tomorrow I will make the mini album to go inside.

This is what the box looked like before I set to work on it today…

and the inside

I decided to leave the silver cover visible on the box and not paint it out in acrylic paint, opting to matt and layer it with patterned paper, pearlescent shimmer card stock, lace and fabric.

I incorporated the shabby rose pins on the front of the box, that I made last week…

and I also made layered up some new flowers, after being inspired by some Prima Flowers that I had seen online

New Home Card

Hi everyone..

Hope you have all had a great weekend!…we have been decorating again, the bathroom upstairs this time, and its nearly complete, thank goodness!

We also have new Neighbours who moved in next door,  I needed to make a card as they have been in for a week and I’ve not met them yet.    So I popped this wee card through their letter box this evening.. hope they like it 🙂

I didn’t have a clue what design, theme etc that I wanted, so i popped over to Pintrest for a spot of inspiration, and found a lovely little design… I managed to track back  to the originators blog to give credit for the design.. you can find it here , my attempt at the card is almost identical, I just used different tools/materials.
