You will not believe it.. I am finally showing you a new project on here..
How long has it been?
Too long if you ask me..
I will be honest.. I was supposed to post this on Sunday for the Anything Goes theme on the Craft Heaven Shop Inspirational Blog but unfortunately I did not have the time to finish it..
Anyway.. I made it.. Finally!
A project I've been wanting to get done for so long..
So here we go..
When I was making it I was thinking that this kind of project would make an amazing decoration in a kid's room..
It is meant to be hung on a wall.. Now I just need to put a hanger on the back..
You might have seen on my Facebook page that I started colouring this gorgeous image a while ago..
Now it's finally finished..
I coloured this Tilda with an Armful of Flowers from the SeaSide collection 2016 with my beloved Distress Inks..
The highlights on the image are made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen and the sparkly details with Stickles..
The dots around her are just Chunky White Frantage..
The stamped roses??
An absolute favourite of mine!
These are the Altenew Vintage Roses..
It was love at first sight and when I discovered how simple it was to use these I couldn't stop..
I used just 1 Distress Inks to make these and I did some simple and second and third generation stamping to achieve this unbelievably realistic effect..
If you would like to see a tutorial about this just let me know..
The die I used to cut out the image is a Spellbinders frame from the Floral Assortment set..
I tried to embellish as many surfaces as I could and I did use my sewing machine to do the stitches all around the paper pieces..
I also used a paper doily to give some more interest..
The papers are all from Pion Design..
One sheet from the Vintage Garden collection and two from the Paris Flea Market collection that is just to die for..
There are many many details on here..
I used a GoKreate behind the image..
Then some Magnolia Doohickeys like the gorgeous Tilda Tag and Chicken Wire..
I stamped the tags and fence from the Cozy Fox and Fence Stamp & Cutz set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and the Magnolia Postcard set and the New York Set and an old Kort & Godt stamp I have..
The kraft paper is from Bazzil..
I put a bit of foam adhesive behind the fence to make it pop out more..
Then there is a little frame I made and the butterflies..
And all those marvelous WOC flowers all around with some cheesecloth under..
Some half-pearls to make it more sophisticated..
And the fabulous White Resin Roses..
The lace.. Our wonderful Lace Fleur..
An a cute little bronze charm called Romantic Key..
I did apply some Dina Wakley Gesso here and there and some half-pearls on the outside too..
I also gessoed some parts of the chipboard frame and left the rest just as is..
Then there's the back of the box..
Since it will be hanging somewhere I decided to make just a simple pocket when you can tuck in a nice message for the recipient..
The border I used is also a Magnolia die.. This one is pretty old but still one of my all time favourites..
It's called Old Swedish Lace..
Cute, isn't it?
Here's one last shot of my project folks..
Hope this post wasn't too long for your liking and you got to the end of it..
Can't wait to make something else!
I'm finally back!!!
