No, you are not imagining it, I have really managed to post here two days in a row – hurrah! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Anything But A Card. This is particularly exciting as it is the first that encompasses the new design team. The challenge is open for three weeks, starting from today, and each week there will be a fresh set of inspirational projects from the DT. The theme for this months challenge is Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder which takes into account the global diversity of our DT and participants and the seasonal changes taking place across the world right now. Here’s my project:
Something like this has been on my “to do list” for a VERY long time, so I am thrilled to have finally given it a go. My miniature Halloween apothecary cabinet has been created using paper and images from the Gecko Galz. I used a selection of small corked vials from my stash (Ebay purchases) and added the labels which are from the Spooky Tickets collage sheet.
The box is the base of a black box. I sanded some of it and then inked over the top with Forest Moss distress ink. I’ve lined it with paper from the Mayflower paper pack and added the poison images which is from the Haunted Ephemera collage set. The apothecary sign was printed from my computer and inked with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.
To finish the box I’ve added some metallic trim (Tim Holtz) and a metallic brad (Stampin Up!).
Be sure to buzz over to Anything But A Card and see what the rest of the DT have been up to, I took a sneaky peek earlier in the week and you are in for a treat.
I don’t know about where you are but in my part of the world it is suddenly beginning to feel a lot like Autumn!
Thanks for buzzing by.
