Sunday Mojo #11


It´s my turn this week to crash the goodies and this is what I delivered to myself and Wendy!

I have to admit I had an idea in my head as I was chsoosing the items however initially I had decided to give a 12 x 12 sheet or Core´dinations paper as I love it´s texture and the possibilities.  Also I seem to have got away from the distressed look I used to concentrate on a few months ago!

I thought this would help me to mix the two worlds with something Classic yet with a distressed edge, heres what I came up with...

Firstly we have a round box, with lid which isn´t very obvious in the pictures!!  this is covered in the Core´dinations which has been embossed with Wemndy´s Garden Lattice embossing folder (Really should give it back, had it for weeks)  This was then distressed with a sanding block on the raised area and the gems used at the points.

Next a gift card made from a failed experiment with the radiant rectangle die and a piece of antique coloured lace.

Finally a card made with the remnants of the die cut mounted onto the last of the Core´dinations with a tag and bow added embossed and sanded in the same way as above.  Enjoy...
