Swirlydoos Kit Club, Ultimate Designer Challenge. Week 3

This week’s challenge was to emboss metal tape and create something with it. My creation is called “Easter in Fairy Grove.”

I started with this empty box that was destined for the recycle bin.

 And here is the final project:

I deconstructed the box, covered the outside with vintage wallpaper and the inside with various vintage papers. The patterned paper is Prima “Printery” and Graphic 45 “Once Upon a Springtime.”

I embossed the metal sheets and then cut it into strips and painted with gold alcohol ink to create a frame around my shadowbox.

I also made a variety of flowers using the metal, which I inked with alcohol ink or colored with permanent markers.

In case you couldn’t tell, the rabbit is moveable, so he can deliver the eggs among the fairies and friends. I added an embossed and inked butterfly to his pole.

I had so much fun with this week’s challenge! I would not have thought to use the metal in the ways that I did if I hadn’t been pushed to do so.
