Its time for the 2nd challenge over at Crafts and Me! There was a great response to the first challenge and I hope you pop back and check out the new challenge set by Trish which is a colour combo of Brown, Pink and Yellow! They work wonderfully well together :)
Seeing as I'm in a challenging myself mode lately I decided I wanted to make something different so after making one box out of several pieces of chipboard I looked at it and drew one out I could make with a piece of 12x12 card with just a join at the front. This is 4" high by 3" wide and deep and I'm using mine to hold my ATC blanks and bits and pieces that I'm making for the Port Sunny show. I will post destructions separately in another post later on in the week.
I've decorated my box using Stampin' Up tea and crumpets papers and flowers are from stash. The image is Moonlight Whispering by Sweet Pea which you can buy in the UK via Crafts & Me. I've cut the cat out again (sorry cat!) as I wanted her perched on the top of the box. To do this I've left a 1" piece of card below the image which I glued onto the back of the box then covered with the DP's.
I know she's not a fairy but I thought she looked a bit sad that she couldnt fly so I gave her some wings nicked from Dark Royalty :D
To give her wings I've used fantasy film in Dandelion. Think gold with a rainbow sheen. I'll also show you with the box how to use fantasy film, its really easy pwomise :D
I made two sets of wings so they're 3d, they also make rather pretty butterflies if you draw the body bit with perfect pearls, 3d crystal lacquer or similar or perhaps a line of sticky gems :)
