Tsunami Rose Challenge 9:Altered Item

Hey Peeps its challenge day over at Tsunami Rose and this week the theme is Altered Item
The girls have come up with some beautiful projects and here's my contribution


I painted the box with white acrylic and then applied a crackle medium in areas
once dry i rubbed in walnut stain DI to accent the crackles
I Printed various sheets from the Parisian Daydream on to velum and tore or cut them out
and stuck with modge podge
I've found if you sprinkle the vellum straight away after printing with fine clear detail EP it lessens the chance of the images bleeding when you glue them
I used scraps of left over velum around my display and bunged them in the box with the aid off pinflair glue and then added a few accents on wire, the tassel is attached with a brad

Hope you like and i hope you can come over and join in
the deets are below

Finally Ive Blogged ............

Hi Peeps Blogger has lead me a merry dance this weekend but with a tweak and a change of browser I made it hee hee
 
I have joined the Fabby Seema's DT along with a couple of other lovely friends Lindsay and Sheila,
 
Seema has a website where you can find her monthly challenges here and you can also find the links via the facebook page here.
 
The challenge theme this month is  use a milk bottle, glass or plastic it's up to you
 
This new monthly challenge will run until the end of March and there will be a little prize for the winner.
 
Here's my contribution

 
 
I cut a slice out of a plastic milk bottle
Used my tag die to cut the shape
embossed it with a wood effect folder
cut a slice and embossed with a tim holtz folder
rubbed both bits with stazon brown ink
fastened with grommets
I poured copper utee in the green top and melted with my heat gun them stamped a butterfliy in it whilst still runny and stuck it on with a bit of pinflare
 
and the bonus is its completely water proof haha it actually looks like vellum so I can see me doing this again with other small dies just to get a sturdy embelishment hee hee
 
I hope you can come and join in xx
