Anything But A Card - Crafts and Me

Last one today Peeps,

Wow, I have really enjoyed creating this 4 Drawer Easel for my design team project at Crafts and Me, but I so needed the bank holiday to help, lol.

The image I have used is "Love is Gone" by Sweetpea stamps availabe right HERE, from Teresa at Crafts and Me.  She is one of my favourite sweetpea stamps and I have coloured her with my copics.  I have a couple of family birthdays coming up and this little box will make an ideal gift....... if I can bring myself to part with it that is......

The papers are the Bo Bunny limited edition Glitter papers, totally gorgeous.

The flowers are a combination of prima, wild orchid and stash.  I have also used two different sizes of paper doilies, one sprayed with glimmer mist and one left white.  I have added a couple of butterflies cut out of paper and a stamped magnolia butterfly.  I have also used my airdry clay, again available from Crafts and Me as well as the mould.  So easy to use just pop it in the mould, leave and then pop out and colour as required.  I left this one white but covered it in star dust glitter for some additional sparkle.  The lace is from my stash.

I did the wings originally in fantasy film but got carried away with my sparkling glitter, lol.  I added lots of star dust stickles to the flowers so this project is sparkly all over, just how I like it.

I have entered this project into the following challenges:-

Sir Stamp alot - Butterflies and Blossoms
Lili of the Valley - Here comes Summer
Crafty Angels - One for the Girls
Everybody Art - Make A Gift
Papertake Weekly - Shiny and Sparkly

Hi Tracy

What a wonderful burst of colour with all those wonderful blossoms and beautiful fairy.

Thank you for sharing it with us at Stampalot Challenge this month, but sadly it is illegible for our prize as you have exceeded the number challenge entries (rules on our side bar and above Mr Linky.

I do hope you will enter another piece of work as I would hate for you to miss out on the prize.
