Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 20 April 2018

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Just a reminder that the Monthly Blog Challenge topic is "USE YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "ADD A CHARM" by Nicola.

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
I do apologise for my photographs  As my computer is not allowing my camera to download I have had to resort to my husband's tablet and I'm not the best at using it!! 

I have gone for a mixed media project for my craft room.  I decided to make a piece of storage using an empty Pringles box with the box cut down to 14cm high with a semi-circle cut out of the bottom.  I then painted it with my Imagination Crafts Blue Starlight Paint.  I ended up giving it a good two coats to fully get rid of the "Pringles" logo and to give it lots of sparkle and shine.

The Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp I used was "It's all about love" and I coloured the image in with Promarkers and fussy cut the image out.
 To decorate the box I used some blue mesh underneath the image, lots of pink and blue flowers, blue cord and I made a little charm dangler with some beads/pearls, birdcage charm and some beading thread.

Now finished it houses the cotton wool pads that I use with my chalks when doing backgrounds etc.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and Cocoa
Dress - Duck Egg and Denim Blue
Flowers/birds/leaves - Sandstone, Khaki, Cerise, Rose Pink and Bright Green.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:
