A new challenge starting today
and this fortnight
we would like to see your creations
favourite colour combo
and tell us why in you link up.
We are sponsored this time round
My favourite colour combo has to be Blue and Cream. Loved it since I was a child. Why I'm not really sure, I can only say I'm always been drawn to it when buying anything from clothes to things for the home. Okay, I have made a few things now with these gorgeous papers from Papermania, so me and so love them. I have revamped a rather grotty looking notelet drawer box that has been lying around for some years waiting to be updated and so pleased with the result.
This is the before
Painted it first with Acrylic paint and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz inks and then the fun part began!
The buttons for drawer knobs
Papermania Parisean Blue all ready to distress,mat and layer/
And this is the after.
The top is decorated with a doily, cream lace, think it's a Memory box die and the Butterfly is Spellbinders. Finished off with K&Co pearl brads and metal corners
The drawers I added a Memory Box die flower flourish and pearls. The drawer knobs I glued two buttons together, painted with the acrylic paint, using a circle punch, cut a circle from the patterned paper, glued to button knob then inked with clear embossing ink and dipped in clear embossing powder, heated and repeated several times to glaze the button knob. Then glued in place on each drawer.
