Sketch Challenge With Stampsmith #20

It's been so long since I played with the Stampsmith Challenge, so I think this week was a good one to do so! I used the Stampsmith italian tarot stamps to make the background of my 6" x 6" card and I also used an image for the top of the card where I stamped L'amour est éternel. Sketches are not always easy to work with but it was a fun challenge!
Have a creative Monday!

A Before And After Project

I had this wooden money box since so long.... I decide to alter it in some way. I wanted to make something that no one will know that it was a money box. I simply added a lid/roof to look like a house. I made the lid from chipboard and kraft paper.
I also covered the edges of the box so now it looks like a paper maché box...... please note my cup of milky coffee at the right side!!
The lid/roof open
I used 7gypsies patterned paper to cover it.

Now, you all know about my secret money box!
Have a creative week-end!

Alter It Monthly Challenge - Sirens And Deep Blue Sea!

This month at Alter it monthly the theme is Siren/Mermaid, ok, since I am not completely bilingual, is there any difference between a siren and a mermaid? I think no but maybe I'm wrong. So this month I altered a clear plastic box. You know, we all buy stuff and this was a box of pencil. And I choose to make a bird mermaid!!!! Yes, a bird mermaid! After I finished it, I just realized that it looks like a small aquarium with my mermaid inside! I had fun doing this challenge again!

And I gave her a real false pearl necklace!
Have a creative Wednesday!
