I have made this box for the Crafty Individuals' July challenge using CI 238 and 258, Spring Background Papers, and their Chocolate coloured German scrap, together with some cream lace, and crackle paint. I stamped the Spring papers with the background text stamp (one of my favourites!) and then glued it onto some grungepaper cut with the Tattered Florals die, so that the flowers had some shape and strength. The flower on the left is made of clay, from a home-made mould from some of my ubiquitous Primark jewellery!
I've just edited this post as I see the challenge is now up on the Crafty Individuals' blog. The theme is to use pink, brown, and cream, and to use at least one Crafty Individuals' product as usual. There is a good chance of winning a prize of your choice of stamp so do have a go! I have really enjoyed seeing what people have been making each month. If you haven't seen them yet, there are some gorgeous new stamps out including an ornate bird cage and some 1920s ladies.
