I was a little bit stumped for what to do! I did consider a Shaker card, but there were already two of those on the blog and I am hopeless at stamping on acetate... just too impatient for the ink to set! I wanted to do something a little bit different so I thought I'd make an acetate box. I had no idea what I was going to put in it, or how it was going to turn out, I just grabbed some patterned paper and started scoring.
It took three attempts at scoring the acetate to get the fold correct, it was late at night and the old brain just wasn't cooperating! The top and bottom of the box are made from Prima Botanical paper and I was given a gorgeous new PATP set from one of my bloggie besties for my birthday so I had to test it out straight away!
I was in a bit of a painting mood so I inked up "Tilda's Birds", "Butterfly background" and "Garden Tilda" with Versafine and stamped them onto some delicious watercolour paper. I'm still a bit of a novice with watercolouring, but I was quite happy with how the images turned out. Like with Copics, the choice of paper really does make a difference.
In the base I've scrunched up some cheesecloth and glued in some flowers. The background is attached to the back of the acetate box and Tilda is standing on some tabs that I've attached to the base.
I've used a combination of Magnolia Tulips and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (Ivory Small flat Gardenia, Ivory Cherry Blossoms, 15mm Pale blue open roses, Ivory Aster Daisies).
The edges of the box have been distressed with Walnut stain and liquid pearls dotted around.
The sentiment on the tag is from Tickled Pink Stamps.
Sorry for all of the photos, but I was kind of pleased with how my little box turned out. It is a bit like little Tilda is in an atrium, lol.
I hope you get a chance to come and play at Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week. The girls and I just love bisiting to see what you have made to share with us.
I would like to enter my box into these challenges:
Thanks for visiting me today :) I'll be back tomorrow with something else to share!
