Sentimental At FSC

Brenda came around for a playday when I was at home and showed Pat, Clare, Amber and myself how to alter a plain box to this.
Didn’t have time to complete the inside so I decided to finish for my DT piece at Fashionable Stamping Challenges which is Sentimental this fortnight. Our generous sponsor Flonz Crafts will be giving the winner of this challenge $20 to spend at his online shop.

To finish the box I needed to decorate the inside and that’s where my sentiments went. Stamped the Dylusions Quintessential Quotes also a sentiment from a Woodware set and the other was from Indigo Blue called Grand Tour III.

Before I added to the bottom inside of the box I took a photo because once inside the box it wouldn’t have shown all the gorgeous techniques which I did. Crackled her hair and the bird but for her face I used Glossy Accents. Masked off and made a border, coloured in plus I shaded with a graphite pencil which Brenda showed us how to use.

Wahoo sweets managed to get one over here.
