I am happy to report that the SSPT Design team is up and running again!!! WOOHOO!!! Health issues have prevented us from creating for a bit, but we are back in style!!!
Our challenge, issued by Miss Lacy, was to create something with a Victorian theme. I recently purchased an embossing powder tin from T!m Holtz. The box it came in was just too cool to toss, so I upcycled it. First, I painted it with my ColorArtz airbrush system in cranberry to match my cardstock because I wanted all the edges and corners to match my paper. Then I cut and applied cranberry cardstock to the box. I then cut the Cameo from the Heritage Cricut cartridge, once in chipboard and once in black cardstock, misted it with Pearl and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist, then applied 3 coats of Utee. I created her pearl jewelry using my Pearl Pen from Viva Decor. I wrapped the box with 1" strips of black cardstock, then applied some gimp lace, topped off with flat-backed pearl trim. The two lace pieces were misted with Red Velvet Glimmer mist in a method that creates an ombre effect. I then added a satin flower created using my heat gun, some feathers and black pearl bling. I plan to use this box to store greeting cards. Thanks for visiting my blog today! I love comments!!! Check back soon! I have another great give-away in the works!!!
