Crafty Individuals Challenge ~ Wedding Casket

The theme for the July Crafty Individuals Challenge is pink, cream & brown. Mmmm what a lovely combo, lush and vintage. I actually did two, but decided to enter the Wedding Casket.

I altered a wooden jewellery box, which I painted using pink and brown matt emulsion and crackled. I then used CI - 161 and stamped the script randomly over the box with coffee archival ink. I sprayed the box with crafters companion varnish. I used cream cotton which I painted with gesso and stamped CI - 139 and coloured with distress inks. I then coated with matt mod podge to protect the stamped image, finally outlining with a gold leafing pen.

I dyed some white lace with hubby's tea bags. LOL! Then attached the lace and added pearls. I made a ribbon rose following one of the many youtube tutorials and added another lacy embellishment. Finally screwing on a Tim Holtz curio knob and feet to complete the casket.







I am also entering this into Our Vintage Affair July Challenge  ~ Wedding

The notebook is covered in some Claudine Hellmuth sticky canvas on which I printed a digital design. I added  tea dyed lace pearls and cream roses. I die cut some Tim Holtz vintage shabby paper with the baroque die then stamped with a Katzelcraft stamp. I used pro markers to colour  CI - 322 then cut, outlining with gold leafing pen and coated in glossy accents. Another ribbon rose and some danglies from my stash.


This is entered for the following challenges 


Thanks for all the lovely comments you are leaving.

Happy Crafting X
