Floxglove Frenzy

I've rushed to make this card for a challenge and missed getting it in by a couple of minutes. Never mind I'll share it anyway because I really like it.

This has been stamped in distress inks using the Clarity foxglove stamps. The image has then been layered up with 3 shades of coordinating card. The simple sentiment was hand written and a long tailed bow to finish. Never mind maybe next time I'll get there in time.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
Just Add Ink - Just add Nature
Crafty Ribbons - Fabulous Flowers
Fan-tastic Tuesday - ATG with flowers
Craft-dee Bowz - Use a Bow

Pretty Box

Happy New Year to all my lovely visitors. This is my first post of the year and it is my project for the new Creative Artist Mixed Media Challenge.
And the theme is 
Use Chipboard.
Our sponsors are Dusty Attic, they have some great chipboard kits and shapes to work with.

Now to the box. It has been coloured using a alcohol pen in a dark lilac colour and then covered in a patterned paper. I have cut some corner out using a die in a matching lilac card. Round the top edge of the box I have put some white and a light green lace.

On the lid there is a piece of the same patterned paper. I have then used a toning glitter 3D paste though  Clarity Stamps leaf spray stencil. To finish off the lid I have added a lovely matching feather, some lilac flower sprays and a few very pale green paper flowers.

I really enjoyed doing this project, made me feel like spring is just around the corner.
