This is my third week as GDT for PaperPlay challenges - where are the week's going? This week we are asking you to make anything other than a card and are sponsored the week by the fabulous Craft Brulee and one lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in the store.
I've been wanting to make one of these fabulous drawer boxes of Kirstens of ages and this seemed the perfect opportunity. You can find her brilliant, easy to follow instructions HERE
I use the beautiful Willow with lantern from Whiff of Joy (I don't think I'll ever tire of this gorgeous image) and coloured her with Copics. The papers are Basic Grey's Aged & Confused Vagabond collection. All the edges are distress using the Tim Holtz distressing tool, inked with Weathered wood distress ink and glittered using Diamond stickles. The pearls are from Prima marketing, the flowers from Wild Orchid crafts, the leaves cut with a Woodware punch and the lace is from my stash. I've used TH Idealogy hitch fasteners on each of the little drawers. The scrolls on the side are cut with a Cuttlebug Floral borders die and a Fancy tag used for the inside of the card, yet to be stamped. For strength I used Bind-it-all 6" x 6" chipboard covers for the top and bottom.
This is a close-up of the card on the top of the box which I decided to make into an easel card.
And this is the side of the box showing the little drawers, although they aren't so little, each one measures 2" x 3", now I just have to decided what to put in them. This is one lousy photograph - might try again in daylight - not the easiest project to photograph.
I only ever make a card for one, maybe two challenges and it it fits others, brilliant and this one also fits into the following challenges.
Sir Stampalot - distressing
ABC - distressing
The Stampman also distressing
Whiff of Joy - Layers
So I'm a Happy bunny this morning - i seem to have finally shrugged off the super bug that's been dragging me down, Blogger is behaving himself and the world is all lovely and 'rosey' yet again!!
