. . . when you're having fun!
What could be more fun than altering an Altoid tin and a pink bunny?
This weeks challenge at Stampotique is 'Dear Diary'. I've looked at the challenge theme from a different angle and used a calendar, printed off the net, they're easy to find. Then alas the last Altoid tin I have 'in stock, in other words, in my box of 'things I shall use one day'. I love these tins they are a great size to fit in your handbag and carry around. The sentiment seems so true, often I book appointments etc and think to myself, 'that's ages yet' then in a blink of an eye that date has arrived, maybe it's just that I'm getting older and time seems to be speeding up.
I began by sticking the buttons along the bottom and then painting with a neutral tan colour, I used punches for the hydrangeas and flowers. The text and calendar are printed. The adorable pink bunny is the only stamp used and the bunny, pink flowers and calendar backing paper were all coloured with Prismacolour pencils. To finish off I painted the sides of the tins in a darker brown.
I do hope you can find time to join in the challenge this week which will enter you into this months Stampotique draw, for all details click here.
Wishing you a very happy, healthy and crafty 2013.
