My first project was for the 'Happy Daze' Shades of blue challenge and I used a small wooden hinged icon and painted it pale blue then used a combination of lost Coast & non sequitur stamps (yes I have been interneting shopping again!) and highlighted in Inka gold, silver paint.
I had bought a few small wooden boxes which were very cheap, not quite sure what to do with them, but sure I would find a use for them later. I'm at my happiest messing about with paint and seem to have more success with 3D objects rather than cards. I rummaged through my growing stamp collection and spied one of my favourite crafty individual stamps CI - 278 and here is the result, which I decided to varnish. I also painted the inside of the box and lined with some pretty paper.
I recently bought some of the new Graphic 45 stamps and decided to use them on another of my little boxes. I made the flower using the Tim Holtz flower die, the middle sized one. I die cut about six of them and inked both sides and fastened using a small brad, scrunched up the flower, spritzed with some cosmic shimmer and glued on an old button. I found this method on http://gingernonutsbits.blogspot.com/ and adapted it slightly to suit my box.
Lastly I made another Mother's Day card using some more Crafty Individuals goodies. The stamp used is CI - 065 I made a similar flower to the one above. Some Tim holtz papers for backing and a spritz of cosmic shimmer to colour the cream card as I didn't have any pink ones!
