Morning peeps and it’s nearly time for a looong weekend, yayyy : )
But before that we have to head on over and catch up with the Papertake Weekly gang and as it’s the last challenge of the month, it’s time to
Take Your Pick
I combined the colour challenge which this month is pastels, with the technique challenge which is to make a treat holder for Easter and I also snuck in an oval so that’s the product challenge as well.
You get a shed loads of little extras in this die set as well which you can use for other things.
I enjoyed making them so much that I ended up making three lol.
And here they are -
This first one uses some of the extras from the set, including the gorgeous filigree plate and the oval.
I covered the plate with some Tonic Nuvo Diamond Glitter – this stuff is great – it doesn't seem to drop like others do and you can burnish it once it’s dry (you've probably seen Jodie doing this on the telly) .
I added a bow made from 38mm white organza and topped it off with an aqua spotty button, both from The Ribbon Girl
The second bag uses the same papers and one of the extras from the die set.
I’ve also added some Nuvo Crustal Drops in Pearl White.
The bloom is made from Tonic Plush Peony Entwining Trellis and Delicate Daisy Entwining Trellis.
There’s a close up at the top of the post and if I get a sec I’ll pop a quick tutorial on here to show you how I made it.
And for the last one …
… I used a Tonic Deco Trellis Base Die Set and a layered up Tonic Studios Rococo Petite Die - Butterfly Sprig with some Tonic Studios Neptune Nuvo Crystal Drops, again from Crafty Devils. I added some knotted 15cm white tulle from the Ribbon Girl and finished it off with a rhinestone sparkler.
So that’s my little bags.
I thought I’d do a treat holder for an adult as a change from the ones I do for the kids – hope you like : ))
Right I’m off to get some work done.
Enjoy the rest of your day and if I’m not back in the land of blog before then, have a fabulous Easter.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
