We have a new Challenge (#48) over at Crafty Gals Corner! This week's challenge is Anything Goes (makes it easier for this time of year, don't you think?).
Our sponsors this week are:
Prize: 4 Digital Images
Prize: $20 gift Certificate
For this week's challenge, I chose the image Sweet as Holiday Pie from Sassy Studio designs.
As you can see, my digital has a mini-gift box attached to it. It's just a small 3x3 box, but a gift card, money, jewelry, etc., can be put inside of it. I downloaded a pattern; however, the name of the site didn't show up on the pattern, so I'm not sure where it came from. I can tell you it came from Pinterest.
I printed the pattern on a plain heavy duty cardstock paper so it'll be sturdier. I then put it together. After coloring in my digital with Prismacolors, I decorated her with Glass Glitter (Reneabouquets) and Glossy Accents. I took a piece of Laser Silver Lustre from Paper Temptress and colored it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I also distress inks on the backside so it'll look better on the back. After inking, I used my Embossalicious winter embossing folder. (I tried to search this for a link, but was unsuccessful.) I adhered her to the front side of this paper. By the way....this paper inks up beautifully! I placed this piece onto the back of the box, attached lace from the Lighthouse stop n' shop Facebook page and added flat-back pearls to 3 sides of the box. I added a snow butterfly (Reneabouquets) and Metallic Silver Stretch Loop from Paper Temptress. The remainder of the 6x6 square piece of the Laser paper, I cut down to size and placed a piece on the bottom of the box and the inside flap.
I hope you enjoyed this! And please be sure to check out the challenge! It's anything goes...so whatever you want to do is fantastic!
