It's Tuesday again and we have a new theme over at the Everybody Art Challenge Blog.
This week the challenge is to make a handmade gift.
I knew exactly what I was going to do having bought a couple of components to make a clock at the NEC craft fair in November and I am really pleased with the outcome.
Square chipboard for the base
Brown Bazzill card used to cover the chipboard
Patterned paper from the Ella Blue GCD collection, ripped, inked and distressed
Music paper distressed with ink and edged with gold embossing powder
Brown paper crimped and distressed
To make the swirls and flowers I have used Grunge Paper and two Tim Holtz dies inked with distress inks and stamped with various stamps.
The leaves are a Spellbinders die that have been inked and covered with
Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals.
The numbers are white chipboard coloured with black ink and embossing crystals x 3. I have used the same technique on the word SMILE and coloured with Mica Powder.
Extra flowers have been added purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts, butterflies from my stash, swirl gems and a Tim Holtz button.
I hope you can join in this week.
Thanks for looking.
