Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge #1


As promised, we're back with our first Simon Says Stamp monthly challenge! We are so excited - this has been in the planning for weeks and weeks and today's the day we get to show our creations to you all! Heidi from Simon Says Stamp has very generously agreed to sponsor this monthly challenge and the prize is .........

Now, because this is a special challenge with an extra special prize the theme is a bit more challenging but we know you can all do it! This month the challenge is to alter a container.

When I read we were going to do this challenge I was going to duck out. I've never altered something like this and I didn't think I could do it. When I told my DH last sunday he said I should do it and he was confident that I could do it (no one believes in me like he does), so I started altering this little wooden box, didn't have a lot of time to finish it, but I managed.
I didn't have any pearls that matched so I coloured them with my Copics, I sprayed the lace, roses & white Prima flowers with glimmer mist 'old lace'.

Here's my altered container, (please go easy on me, lol):


Papers: DCWV; Luxury stack
Stamps: Magnolia
Colour medium: Copic Sketch Markers
Embellishments: Say it in Crystals & Flowers; Prima, Glimmer mist; Tattered Angels, Pearls; Kaiser kraft, Roses, Lace; Stash

Thank you for looking,

Hoi Naoual!

dank je wel hoor voor je compliment :) Ik las dat jij ook meedeed aan de DT call. Mooie kaart hebt je gemaakt daarvoor :) Ik wens je ook veel suc6, maar gezien jouw kaarten moet dat geen probleem zijn.

Wie is je tante als ik vragen mag? Misschien ken ik haar?
