Afternoon everyone..

Well have you seen the new collection by

The pillar is a sil file cut on portrait..And thought would be ideal for this image, with sentiment from same collection on back..

Promarkers used to colour image, background is distress oxide spray, but used brush..With some white posca pen dottied all over..

This is the reverse side..

Gift Box....

Morning all...Only just mind..Well do not know about where you all are,  But here its a miserable day...Has been raining all morning no sign of any let up..So good day for crafting..

I decided i would start getting some bits done ready for christmas..(must not swear anymore) suppose never to soon to start..
I came across this cutting file by snapdragon..I do like there files...Thought would make a nice pressie for a friend, shall fill with small bath accessories ect..Or even choccys

After cutting out all bits n putting together, i used papers from stash to decorate..Lid i then used a stencil and some luna paste.. Can see it glimmer in pic below...Flower i found in stash no idea where got from...It was a peachy colour, but i sprayed with some chic moss,  ink spray mist....Cut words out and stuck to lid..
Ive distressed papers to..Then out came the string of beads..Has taken me few days to complete this

Found some metal corners, think got from the works and added to bottom corners

Even decorated inside..So didnt look so plain when empty..Have used velcro for lid to hold closed..

Thank you for looking
