Anways…………..after a longgggggggg absence I am finally entering a little something into one of my favourite challenges, Just for Fun, that trio of craftyliciousness have this week as their theme ” Medieval ” !!!! Von the jamming queen is the culprit what a fertile imagination she has, and I will be asking her to call upon it when she sees my box !! So let me show you what I mean ….
Well this I suppose could be construed as ” Asian ” but I’m asking you all to use every ounce your your imagination and move it on over to the Medieval category ! It looks like a card but it is in fact a box with a glass top which was a real so and so to photo. This was the only shot I could get that didn’t have my gorgeousness reflected in it ! For the base I used magic gold card ( well that’s what it called its self on the package ) I stamped the card with my favourite SU text stamp and then embossed with clear embossing powder, such a waste as you cant see it ! I then inked up my Harlequin embossing folder ( that’s the medieval part ) with black Stazon ink and passed it through the Big Shot. For the dragon I used for the first time this Dreamweaver stencil and coloured it using gilding flakes………never again, I thought glitter was bad this is far worse it actually floats !!! normal breathing just transfers these little flakes to the other side of the room so I had to hold my breath while I was making this portion of the card . The background is filled in with black glitter and the overall image is KITSCH AS CAN BE !!!!!. the black porcelain flowers just arrived yesterday all the way from Hong Kong !! and add to the overall kitschyness of the box. One thing is for sure I will never, ever be using gilding flakes in the near future, that coupled with glitter makes for one big mess , two blingy mutts and one cranky crafter. It also took me three attempts to make the image so there is an abundance of the stuff still hiding in all manner of crevices in the crafting cave !
So much for the short post ! Just writing about it and reliving it has given me a headache ! Do pop over and visit the gorgeous girls at Just for Fun they have some wonderful pieces of inspirational art to drool over and inspire us with.
Right am of for a lie down, the boss has given me the day off to rest and recuperate so am away to do just that.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
