Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it was a good one for everyone. Below is the candy box I made for my hubby for Valentine's day. He likes his sugar, so a card just wasn't going to cut it. I used sweet little Fairy Tale Tilda and turned her into a little bit of a goth princess. That was not my intent when I started - I think we have Tim Holtz and his Regal Flourishes texture fade to blame for that.:) Once I embossed it on a deep red cardstock and inked it in black soot the mood was irreparably set...
Fairy Tale Tilda coloured with Tim Holtz Distress inks (except skin) as follows:
Dress and roses: aged mohagany
Frog: forest moss and scattered straw
Crown: scattered straw
Hair: black soot, weathered wood and faded jeans
Ribbons and flowers: tattered rose and victorian velvet
Leaves: forest moss
Cheeks: tattered rose
Wings: Rock Candy Distress Stickles
Skin coloured with a watercolour pencil
Other stamps include Magnolia 'May your day be special' and Close to my Heart 'Cherished Flourishes'
Paper: Bazzil cardstock, Stampin' Up and unknown from my stash. Box was made using heavy bristol board.
Other supplies: Martha Stewart edge punch, Tim Holtz Fancy Flourishes texture fade, ribbon from a local scrapbook store.
I am entering this project in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything but a card
Magnolia-licious - Pink, black and red
Friday Sketchers - Sketch
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Let's see some love
