Hello everyone! Thank you so much to all my lovely WOYWW friends who stopped by yesterday ... even in my absence ... and left me a message to return home to ... made me feel all cosy and warm you did ... I think I managed to visit it you all by 11.05pm last night ... and there was a lot of you ... Mr Linky certainly helped.
As many of you guessed I was teaching yesterday ... a fab class it was too ... but after taking a piccie of my desk at 5am ... I forgot to take my camera so I have no class photos to show you ... sorry!
OK ... back to the box ... I am not sure if I should start apologising for making more grunge roses or not ... I have been making them for ages now and the total must run into high double figures ... possibly even low triple figures ... but the phase still has n't passed and I love making them ... so I am not going to apologise ... even if you demand it :0)
This is a gift box that I made as part of my monthly submission for the Zutter DT ... it is made from white scraps of mount board and really does n't take very long at all. The cost is pennies rather than pounds and just imagine the price tag if you bought it in a card shop or one of those paper boutique places!
I have coloured it using Tumbled Glass; Bundled Sage and Brushed Corduroy Distress inks ... the Ornate frame is from Lord Tim of Holtz. You know Tim ... the man that can win a world chess tournament in his lunch break while having a short nap and restoring ancient monuments with just a class size bottle of Sepia Glossy accents and some Heirloom Gold perfect pearls. The roses are indeed Grunge Paper coloured with Brushed Corduroy and spritzed with Walnut Gold Glimmer mist. I also used some TSS gold metal for the Wendy Vecchi stamped leaves.
Right ho ... I must away ... I have a shed load of stuff to do ... Have a good day and Thank you all for your scientific signs of Spring ... I think it may be Summer here because the sun has been out three days in a row ... don't laugh ... remember last year ...
