Today we start a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges, the theme is Sunshine, use the sun as inspiration and this is the project I made with that theme in mind:
HERE and as a rubber stamp HERE). I decided to use the bright colors of the sun as inspiration and to use some sunflowers at the same time. The stunning papers that I used are Basic Grey Picadilly (mostly the 6x6 paper pad but also some 12x12 papers) combined with orange and kraft colored cardstock. The gorgeous golden pearls are Flourishes with a Bling Antique Gold Chloe pearls. These are two big swirls but I cut them into pieces and used them everywhere on the box. All the pearls you see on both the top and the inside of the box are from one set. Everything was hand-stitched and I used some platinum Stickles.
The gorgeous flowers used are of course all by Wild Orchid Crafts and they are:
White and Orange chrysanthemums
Yellow Mulberry Paper Open Roses 25 mm (I colored the edges a bit with the colors I used on the roses in the image)
Orange Mulberry Paper Open Roses 25 mm
Golden Yellow Mulberry Paper Open Roses 15 mm (again with the edges colored a bit)
Orange Mulberry Paper Open Roses 15 mm
Orange Mulberry Paper Cherry Blossom
White Aster Daisy Stem Flowers
A close up of gorgeous Rosetta. The white dots are white Liquid Pearls and the wings have a layer of Diamond Stickles on them.
And the inside of the box. My sweet friend Diana bought this box from me, it was bare wood but did already have the tray and mirror. You can take the tray (that also was decorated with Basic Grey Picadilly papers) out and underneath is room for more jewelry. Flowers used on the mirror are:
Sweetheart Blossom Flowers (not sure of the color, these exact ones seem to be out of stock)
And a picture of the little pieces used to create this image. The leaves aren't cut yet at this point, I did those one by one when the image was almost done. Coloring has been done with Copic Markers as always :).
Well hope you like my project, it's a birthday gift to my mother in law :). So now it's your turn to get inspired by the theme Sunshine. Have fun and don't forget to enter your entry at Wild Orchid Challenges.
The current challenge theme at Simon Says Stamp Challenge is Flower Power..... I don't think I have to explain how this box fits into that challenge do I, LOL. So I'm entering this box into that challenge.
Oh and before I forget, be sure to check out the Wee Stamps blog later today as you are getting a sneak peek of the new images with a surprise!
