Lavender and Lace

>> Thursday, 5 March 2009



This is my entry for this weeks WOJ challenge. While I was blog hopping the other day I came across Anita's blog. If you have a spare minute you must visit and enjoy the gorgeousness of her creations, but be prepared to be there a while! Anita has created a fantastic little box and very kindly has put the template on her blog, so I though I would give it a go. It was third time lucky on cutting it out right (although I'm not sure why because its not that hard!). I had to modify the shape for the top and bottom and used some thin card which I covered in Crate Paper.

I wrapped lace around the box and then sewed on tiny lavender and pearl beads using invisible thread. I stamped my WOJ image onto watercolour paper and then used Dusty Concord distress ink to shade the paper and also to stamp some flourishes in the corners. I coloured her with distress inks, adding a bit of green for interest.

The flowers are all Woodware punches with tiny gems added to the centre and I added some wire and ribbon. My labels Nesties arrived today so I used one for the inside of the lid and another two for the bottom of the box. All tied up with a satin ribbon. I'm really pleased with how this turned out and will definitely make one of these again.
