Allsorts - No DP allowed

This week at Allsorts the theme is No designer paper allowed. That can be hard since there are so many wonderful papers to use and choose from. But I think my fellow DT:s at Allsorts did a fantastic job and hopefully they will inspire you to create lovely things. I used a plain white paper, stamped the christmas tree from Reprint twice to get the different shades of green (Forest Moss distress ink pad) and added the smudged post stamp from Inkido.

Allsorts - anything but a card

It's Saturday and once again time for a challenge at Allsorts and this week it's one of my absolute favourites: anything but a card. I love doing boxes and I adore making all sorts of stuff prettier :)

This item is a bit sad but it's very beautiful, it's the urn that holds my beloved Oscar, the absolute love of my life and the most beautiful cat that ever lived. It was of plain light wood when I got it so I painted it white, distressed the edges and added lace, flowers and a poem.

Allsorts - poppies

This week at Allsorts Susan has set the theme to Poppies/Remembrence since it's Remembrence Day on Nov 11. This is not celebrated in Sweden but in many other countries. The day celebrates the end of World War I and the poppies are a symbol for the blood spilled on the battlefield (and the fact that lots of poppies grew on the battlefield in Flanders). I found the poppy image as a freebie here.

Remake of an old wooden chest

Found this wooden chest in a thrift shop for £8, I liked the size and the overall quality of it, but not how it looked.
So I painted it white and dabbed the edges with distress ink Walnut Stain, spray painted the metal details with a copper spray and added a French label from The Graphics Fairy and now it's a lot more me :)
