I was so chuffed with this effort that I then did the same with some card, and a few flowers, I was having great fun, card took a while to dry but it is now being flattened out under some books. Will be using it tomorrow.
To finish off the lid I added some of the cotton lace, with some ribbon underneath. Discovered that the lace didn't quite fit, so added a few jewels to cover the tiny gap! And added a bit of stamping to the sides. The advantage to dunking the box in the inks was that the inside also got decorated.
I'm also hoping that someone can help me. I've got some Jewel Enamel powder, so far I've not had much success at melting it using the heat gun, well rather I can melt it but can't get it to stay on the card. I'm using a versamark ink pad, and have tried heating from above and underneath. Any ideas folks?
Got more goodies to sell, amongst them a make your own stamp kit which was featured recently on Create and Craft and some stamps, not yet got round to taking photos of them yet.
Thanks for stopping by, and for all the lovely comments about the canvas, I really did enjoy making that. A few remarked that it was a good idea to lay it out first on some paper, I did it that way as I knew I'd only get one go at it when it came to using the canvas.
Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend - and stay dry.
