Love Always – Print Candee Blog Hop

Posted by on April 11, 2012 in Print Candee | 17 comments

Glad that you have joined me for this month’s blog hop at Print Candee. You should have arrived from the Print Candee blog and after this you need to head on over to Joceyln’s Blog. The Creative Team have been busy whipping up some projects for Mother’s Day.

When I think of my Mum, she loves soft blue colours and roses. So I decided to make a box and combine these two things. I used some gorgeous blue digital papers called Green, Blue Simple Classic Paper Pack 308 (VN Digital Art) to cover the box base and to make the flower I used a lovely pink gingham paper from Essential Digital Paper Pack 300 (VN Digital Art) (I just reduced the opacity to 50%). And here it is.

To make the rose I did a search in Pinterest and came across this rose tutorial. I modified it a little bit to suit my project better. I inked up the edges of the rose with Spun Sugar Distress ink to add a little more depth.

And it all started with this wooden pencil box that I bought from Target –  I just made a lid to fit. I will put some chocolates in it for Mum and then she can use it as a box or maybe even a pencil holder!
