Naughty can be Nice designed for Happy Daze

Not sure what these two lovely ladies have been up to. I'll leave that up to your imagination!
I used a wood jewellery box which I painted in white matt emulsion then I used Lost Coast Designs Naughty can be Nice stamped in archival inkI used victorian velvet & dusky concord distress inks to rub over the box. The image was coloured in with water colours, but you could easily use distress inks. I finished the box using a a button and trim from my stash & a chain tassel.

I've decided I'm not much of a card maker at the moment, but I did manage to make one at the weekend under duress. LOL! I think I need some more practice!

The image is crafty individuals CI- 320 which I stamped onto cotton !

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I love visiting all your fabulous blogs.

Happy CraftingXX

Hi Paula. Crafting at its best! Gorgeous box. So beautifully decorated. Pretty card. The CI stamps do stamp brilliantly onto fabric. It is always a joy to visit your blog.

As much as I love both the card and box it is the box that I have to say "WOW" to. Brilliant use of the stamp. Love the colours and embellishment.
P.S. is it too weird to say that I put finishing touches to an altered box yesterday - we appear to be using or working with similar items!!
My box will not be shown until end of September as it is DT art.

Wow, stunning box and I LOVE that stamp! Your colouring is fabulous too! And your card, - well for someone who is not much of a cardmaker at the moment (your words not mine) I think this is brilliant.

If that's a card that needs practise there is no hope for me!!! :) Beautiful.

I love what you do with decorating boxes and other items - very inspiring.

I wish I could make cards as badly as you!! It's gorgeous. Love the box (perhaps they have discovered the Joy of Flex!), the colours are lovely.
