As some of you know, I live in Scotland and this has been a very special week for us all here.
It started full of hope and excitement, and for many of us ended with a feeling of sadness for lost opportunities. But life must go on and new opportunities will come in different ways, Scotland will rise from the ashes like a phoenix.....
It seemed pertinent at the beginning of this new week to show you a project made with one of the new stamps designed by Sheena Douglas. This time I made a box using the beautiful Phoenix stamp and one of the sentiments that come with the set.
Some of you may have seen her show and all the new stamps last Friday on Create and Craft. There are 6 different sets of stamps, I had three sets to play with and will show you some other projects still in the following days. You can purchase the stamps either from Create and Craft of from Crafters Companion.
I made the box from Kraft card, created a background with Distress inks, Twinkling H2O some sprays and using the salt technique.
I stamped the phoenix with Versamark and then embossed with copper embossing powder. I coloured the phoenix with twinkling H20s and adhered it to the box with foam tape for some extra depth. I then embellished with some flowers and the sentiment stamped in copper as well.
Happy Sunday and have a good week ahead!
