Allsorts - Use pearls

This week at Allsorts it's my turn to host the challenge and I want you to Use pearls. I had a small jewellery box in rather vivid colours so I decided to paint it with white gesso and acrylic paint, distress the edges and put flowers, pearls and a ribbon on it. Suits me more now :)

And this is how it looked before the transformation...

We are sponsored this week by Marianne Design.

Other challenges:
I am roses - anything goes (using all roses, rosebuds and pearl string)

Allsorts - Spring flowers or showers

This week at Allsorts Ellie set the theme to Spring flowers or showers. I went for showers and made a cover for a chocolate box. I paper-pieced the umbrella in the same paper as the cover. Really wish it would actually rain cause that would make the snow go away. The bottom layer is all icy so it feels like it will never melt away...

Allsorts - be there or be square

This week at Allsorts  Kath wants us to use squares on our creations, just making the card square isn't enough.
So I made squares on squares :) using a Stampin Up stamp and sentiment. Distressed a background in lilac and turquoise.

There's a new challenge at Scraphuset this month - to lift (be inspired by) this layout. 

I liked the colours and the banners so I decided to use those elements for a candy box. I started with an empty box I had saved cause I liked the sturdy shape and the gold edges.

Covered it with some design paper and then I decorated it with handmade flowers, a banner, string and pearls.

Allsorts - black and white only

Just came home from Catania, Sicily yesterday. Been there a week with my Erasmus project partners at school. Weather was less fun than expected (last week they had very warm, the next week they will again, but this week was cloudy, rainy and cold - of course...) Oh well, we got lots of work done, saw lovely sights and views and had a wonderful time together.

This week at Allsorts Wendy wants us to use black and white only on our creations, you can still use images cause skin colours are ok, but apart from that it's black and white only.
I made a tag using a new text stamp set I got from e-bay recently. It took a couple of stampings to make the word YOU really black. So glad I made my own stamping buddy. The big butterfly is actually a placement card meant to be put on a glass, I bought a whole pack cause I liked the lasercut wing.

Allsorts - bring on the bling

This week at Allsorts Tracy wants us to bring on the bling in our creations. I made a gift set with a bag and a box, same glittery silver paper on both but the photo filter on the bag makes it look softer :)
Handmade foamiran flowers and a feather for the bag and a die cut and a silver snowflake for the box. The glitter paper are decoration in itself.

Allsorts - fairy tales or nursery rhymes

This week at Allsorts Ellie wants us to be inspired by fairy tales or nursery rhymes in our creations. I used part of the nursery rhyme Rock a bye baby together with an image from LotV to create a gift tag for a baby girl.
 One lucky winner this week will get two adorable fairytale stamps from our sponsor Bee Crafty.
