Woohoo!!! My Magnolia Sweet Rainbow stash arrived this morning!! I can't wait to colour up all the stamps I bought (oops far too many but they are all soooo cute!!!). Today I'd like to share with you a book box card I have made following the sketch at Sketch Saturday. I was lucky enough to win a couple of challenges last month and I've used one of the stamps I won on this card!! Isn't this Bildmalarna stamp gorgeous!?!? I was so thrilled to win her as I've seen these stamps around but didn't buy them as I never seem to find the time to use all my stamps!! She has already been on my desk three weeks bless her LOL! I love her sweet face - so beautiful! I have used some stunning papers too by Girl's Paperie from Oyster Stamps. I would also like to enter my card into the Spoonful of Sugar challenge who would like to see things with wings, Cupcake Crafts Challenge which is bookworm, and Bearly Mine challenge who want to see die cuts and lace.
At last I think I've cracked it with the Primsacolour Pencils!!! I am very pleased with my colouring with them on this image!!! I have finally found a combination for skin that I like (which was my main struggling point!). I really love how this turned out! I have added the customary stickles to her wings of course!
All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added some butterflies punched from some of the paper with a Martha Stewart punch.
I have sewn and distressed all the edges of the papers and inked them with vintage photo distress ink. I also added a touch of vintage photo distress ink to the edges of the cream roses for more of a shabby look. The leaves were punched with a Woodware punch.
This is what the book box looks like when you open it up. Ooooh I think the paper I've made the pocket from is my favourite! OMG it is sooooo gorgeous! The lace and ribbon are from my stash and I used Martha Stewart Doiley Lace punch on the edges of the book "pages".
For the tag I used my new Magnolia doohickey - love this tag die so much already!! I love the fact it has a separate die for the inside section! This is the back of the tag, there is a white space on the other side for a message.
This book box will be for sale on Ebay later if anyone is interested!
