So what did I make?
…..I had gathered some bits and pieces together.
My Hougie board was all ready for action.
8cm x 8cm for the box and a slightly larger top so that it would fit
You will see the reason for the size shortly.
First I wanted to cover the sides with a pink/blue gold paper.
|Brushed Corduroy, Worn Lipstick and Weathered Wood Distress inks smooshed on a craft mat then powdered mica sprinkled very lightly with end of a sharpened coffee stirrer, spritzed and encouraged to run over the paper|
I used a variety of text and patterned stamps too, using Archival browns
The brayer helps to smooth out the paper
Then started to decorate the outside
Flowers were made using a five petalled flower punch, the centre had a petal removed and everything pinched together and ink from my brown distress tool rubbed over the tops.
Then the inside
I have already started to make more of these, so would love to read your comments
Thanks for looking, Chris
