Fri. Jan. 21, 2011 STVCSP9 Color Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!
The temp was -9° here this morning.  I think it's a great day to stay in my studio!

Today we have another color challenge from Gina K.  I hope you play along. There will be a randomly chosen winner from all the entries, who will win a stamp set of their choice, valued at 24.95 or less.



Instead of a card, I chose to make a box to hold some cards, or maybe some candy.


The sentiment is from the new StampTV kit, called Sent with Love. I used the butterfly stamp from Gina's Take Flight set. I glittered the butterfly with transparent glitter (Art Institute) after I colored it with Copics.  I also used Copics to color the pearls  brown to match. The box bottom and the die cut trim around the box edge were made using Chocolate Brown PL card stock. 

I made three rolled roses and sponged the edges with Vivid Aqua ink. The leaves were painted with paint dabbers. I also punched a few little branches and sponged them with the Vivid ink too!

Thank you for visiting!

Those are so sweet Karen. I'm definitely going to share those with my group next week. I'm hosting and they will be nice to embellish one of the projects we are doing. Thanks so much for sharing.

A wonderfully decorated box which will make some lucky friend very happy whether it contains cards or candy. I opt for the cards since yours are so beautiful and non-fattening. I love making boxes, where did you get the pattern?
