ANYTHING but a......????

A CARD!!
NOW.....I have faith in ya'll....and I know you can do this!!
and so do the TEAMIES over at Simon Says Stamp and Show!


soooooo.....I went with a box!!

I covered it with Gesso, then I stamped bubble wrap into it.
I then ran Wild Honey, Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Stain over the dried surface.

I then spritzed it with water. I then ran Tissue Tape around the edges. 
When dry I sealed the entire box with Multi Medium.


Using Maroon Archival Ink, I stamped "Life of the Party Dot" all over the box.

I created a template for the flower and cut the piece parts from the A~MAZING
Kraft Resist Paper. Which I then inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink. Spritzed them with water to help with the forming process. The center flower is made from Crinoline, cut from the Tattered Floral Die and spritzed with Mustard Seed. Each layer is held together with a brad then adhered with Multi Medium. As a final highlight....I dabbed on Fired Brick Distress Stickles.


The flourish was cut from Grungeboard. I painted one side with Gesso, turned it over, and when dry (hopefully you got some of the Gesso on the back side) I inked it with Peeled Paint
and formed it and tucked it under the Flower!!

And there you have it............NOT A CARD!!

so...........are you ready to take on our challenge????
Link up your creation over at Simon Says Stamp and Show

Such a great project Lynne, finished off beautifully by that wonderful flower on top. I'm so jealous of your Kraft resist, it hasn't winged it's way here yet! LOL
