I have been away for the weekend at GNPE, wow it was a great show.
Nice to meet Clarky (Janet) again, thank you for the lovely Easter/Spring chocolates, they were Yummy!
I had a great spend on most stalls, including The MDF Man. He is called Rob and he is a bit of a Nutter, but he is amazing and his MDF is so beautifully made (if you could ever call MDF beautiful!). I have bought other wood/mdf items in the past and had to sand all the edges and gesso all the porous surfaces before being able to decorate. NOT with Rob's stuff, it is of such high quality with beautiful smooth surfaces all routed and lovely, a fab price too.
I bought double figures of his stuff including this Little Tissue Box Cover.
Sorry about the mark on my wallpaper behind my project, that is where the tendril on my rubber plant tried to bash it's way through my wall!
I have used some New Craftwork Cards papers in a Shabby Chic style, these papers are really nice, and with them being very pale and muted in colour, they take Stamping very well.
I have painted the box in a Dulux Paint Pot tester in Putty colour, then cut all the squares of paper then inked the edges with black Soot. After gluing them on with Mat Medium, I stamped the Kanban Tall Flower on the front panel. I then cut a Spellbinders border fence die (this was a bargain on Once upon a Stamp, £5), and added that over the stamp with 3d foam.
The large Butterfly stamp is a Clarity Stamp.
All finished with some Hobbyhouse gems in Dusky Rose. I bought a very cheap box of tissues and popped the cover over the top.
Really pleased at how this turned out and it only took me an hour and a half, so a great quick project.
