I have no idea where my time is going at the moment, I have loads of new stuff on my desk waiting for my attention and it's starting to niggle at me a little bit so I made the effort to finish a project that I started about two weeks ago using a set of Sizzix stamps and dies, designed by the uber talented Paula Pascual. If you are at all interested, the set is Flowers, Lovely 658291 and I understand that the lovely Susan over at Countryview Crafts has them in stock.
My substrate is one of the Tando Creative mini printers trays......these are amazing value!!!
After gluing the pieces together, I painted the whole thing with Honey Dew Fresco Finish paint, found a nice neutral paper to line all the little niches and a piece for the front and inside covers. I used some of Donna Downey's inspirational stamps for the stems of my flowers and then started die cutting and stamping my flowers. Well, I had a lovely time, mixing and matching stamps with dies, inks with papers, I really got quite carried away and have more than enough flowers in reserve for about another 10 projects!!!!
I did dry brush a little bit of Spanish Topaz Treasure Gold around the edges of my flowers, just because I need to use it on everything I make these days!!! Joking aside, it really does give a lovely effect.
I love the fact that these little printers trays have a folding cover, it's a nice way to protect all the lovely treasures that you put inside.
I filled it with lots of the usual stuff....washi tape, ideaology, bits from junk jewellery that I have taken apart, paper flowers, pen nibs, spacer beads.........
........ buttons, postage stamps, keys.......basically anything that would fit!!!!
