I'm here today as it's the start of a new challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and our theme for the next 2 weeks is
"Anything but a Card"
For my 'Anything but a card' piece I have used one of the That's Crafty MDF shrines, this one is ATC box sized.
To decorate the front I used a piece of kraft card that I gelli printed onto, I added detail to the print by using one of Carabelle studio Printing stamps this one was Ronds. The inside I painted using the same colours into an ombre effect. Before I cut the print and added it to the front of the shrine I added some stitched detail with a sewing machine.
One I had glued it to the front I trimmed it to fit and then added torn tissue paper, paint splashes and paint rings, lastly I added one of Alison Bomber Paperartsy words stamps.
The flowers are some of the new greyboard bit and pieces these are from the small funky flowers set.
Painted with red acrylic paint I then laid tissue paper behind and filled the gaps with glossy accents and trimmed the tissue when dry. I then made stems for them using rusty wire and drilled holes in the base to feed the wires though.
Stamping detail inside the box are all using That's Crafty stamps.
Front piece added to the box is a Carabelle studio stamp.
