~* Let's Get Shabby: Challenge #16 - Kitchen and Recipe *~




Hi there!

Here's an altered box I created for Let's Get Shabby Challenge #16. I used Kitchen #2 as my inspiration photo...the required ingredients are as follows:

~One Piece of Fabric (the lovely rose on the lower, right hand side corner of the box is an image I cut from this collaged fabric I purchased)

~Two Die Cut Shapes (I used the Tattered Angel die cut frame and the piece behind it is a die cut shape as well)

~The Colours from Your Kitchen (mine is Kitchen #2, focusing mostly on the pretty rose fabric piece in the back, the light greens, the creams)

I had a lot of fun creating this little box. First, I painted it with antique white paint. I used images from a Webster's Pages' designer paper, lots of flowers, buttons, pearls, and a tiny piece of yellow lace and flower trim (like a baby WP bloomer) that I inked up...also did distressing with inks and added crackle accents to some of the images.

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome weekend and week, sweet peeps!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

Steph you did a fabulous job. Why don't you make your own Etsy shop? At first there were your lovely note pad creations and now this. I know for sure it would be a booming business; this is gorgeous!
Have a wonderful day!

Ooh, how beautiful, Steph! Webster's and Tattered Angels.....one of my favorite combos. Love that fabric flower you used and love the crackle finish. And all the flowers are so beautiful. This is awesome.
so sorry you're going to be without internet this week. But, it will give you time for other things....that's a plus. When I don't have my computer, I'm a mess the first couple of days, but then I start to kind of enjoy it. If we don't hear from you, have a great week!
