Imaginations Crafts - Mid Month Inspiration Post - March Challenge - Imagination In Bloom

Morning my lovely friends, I hope that the weekend will be great for you ALL, and for anyone lucky enough to get to Harrogate today, remember to look up, Imagination Crafts, and treat yourself to some fabulous goodies.

This is my Inspiration post for our March Challenge - Imagination in Bloom at Imagination Crafts Challenge.

Top of Box using Imagination Crafts
Stamp Set - Clematis
Embossing Powder - Tim Holtz - Mustard Seed

Side View of Box

I am going to use this box from my Mum's Mother's Day gift...just need to find something to put into it.

How I made this Project:-

I started by using Modge Podge to cover the box, when dried, I painted with Green acrylic paint, once this was dried, I painted over the Green with a Buttermilk, acrylic paint.  Once dried, I sanded down, to reveal bits of the green.  I stamped the Clematis image, twice, using Distressed Ink - Crushed Olive, then embossed with Mustard Seed, embossing powder.  I adhered the 1st image to the top of the box, using Glossy Accents.  I then, cut around the main Flower image, on the 2nd stamped image, and decoupaged it..on the left over bits I managed to Punch out 2 tiny butterflies...lastly I added ribbon and bow from my stash.

I hope you like my wee box, and I will be bringing you more projects in the future, using this delightful stamp...

The prize for the challenge is a whopping £40 voucher to spend in Imagination Crafts Shop,  how amazing is that.   The rules of the challenge can be found here.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Have a fabulous day, hoping to be back with another post, later on today, if I can get Brian out of the Bedroom...he has been ill for a couple of days now, but hopefully he will be better, fingers crossed..Hugs to all and thank you for visiting.
