I’m entering this project in the Designs by Ryn’s December Customer Creation Challenge.
It was 4 am when I finished my last panel, but I couldn’t sleep if I haven’t finished them. So today I only had to glue them down and take the pictures.
My babies needed a proper home, and this was my way to honor them.
This was how I started. An empty chocolate box, and some toilet paper rolls. I love the colour of this box, it’s just perfect to work with my forever favourite distress ink combination; seedless preserves and dusty concord, that goes wonderfully with milled lavender and shaded lilac.
I applied a layer of gesso first, then I used two layers of acrylic paint.
For the cover I used milled lavender and shaded lilac distress inks, then seedless preserves with the stencil. This was my second attempt so I got some unwanted marks from the stencil, but I also knew that all would be well at the end…
Heat embossed the “title” with white detail embossing powder.
Here I used a stamp set from Fiskars called ‘It’s all in the details’.
Since I thought about this project for the first time I knew I had to use the ‘Sea Bubbles’ stamp set by Designs by Ryn.
To finish I used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser on the edges.
Time to work on the panels. Again, I used the ‘Sea Bubbles’ stamp set, this time I heat embossed the two opposite corners of each panel.
This stamp set is from Fiskars and it’s called ‘For the Birds’.
This is from Inkadinkado, and I can’t find any name… The number is 99120. I also used the number 99550 but forgot to take a picture.
Here I used the ‘For the Birds’ stamp set again.
And this one is from Stampin’ Up!, it’s called ‘World of Dreams’.
I used this stamp set for three of the panels, this one is from TPC Studio and it’s called ‘Playful Expressions’.
Now the ‘Sea Bubbles’ really pop! I love it! Don’t you love when what you have envisioned comes to life just the way you wanted?
Opened box 😉
The sides. I made a boo boo, can you spot it?
