Hiya, I was thinking about a couple of challenges I wanted to enter and decided to do something a bit different. Here is the project I have made for and would like to enter in to the Passion for Promarkers blog challenge – Week 120 ‘alter something that is not square’ and the Polka Doodles blog challenge – Week 40 ‘Hand made flowers and blog candy’
I began with a plain wooden box that came from a local discount store and stamped out my images using black pigment ink and Woodland Folk stamps, then I burned in the design using my pyrography tool and coloured the whole thing in with my promarkers (this was not easy as promarkers do bleed on wood but the burned outline does help to stop most of this).
I then used some paper printed from Joanna Sheen’s Enchanted Dreams cd to line the inside of the box and some mushrooms, flowers and ladybugs printed from the Polka Doodles Double Sprinkles Of Kraft cd rom to decorate the inside and the top of the box.
Finally I made my paper flowers (if you want to know how to make these please see my earlier flower making tutorial) and stuck them to the top of the box and then coloured some white ribbon with my promarkers and stuck it round the edge of the lid tying a bow at the front.
Thank you for reading this post as always I would love to hear any comments or questions that you have.
