The Earth Laughs in flowers...

Happy Monday to all of you!!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and did something really fun and crafty.  I got out lots of things from my stash and a brand new stamp called "The earth laughs rose" and set to work to make something pretty.


To start my project I found a small wooden box in my stash that was bare wood.  It had a glass top on it but i decided to take it off and just create a pretty lattice design for the base and then color a pretty rose to put on top of it.  I stamped the flower and the sentiment first on white paper in a dark green ink and then embossed it in clear powder.  Then i colored it with 3 shades of Copic pens and 2 shades of green that matched really well.  When i finished i cut it all out and adhered it to the top of the box with 3D Foam dots by Scrapbook Adhesives.  It's really simple but i like how it came out.


For the box i painted it all white first and then after i added all the top pieces i went back and added some light pink paint and a bit of darker pink to shade it and match the flower.  And then i got a little crafty and added a stenciled design on the sides with white gesso.  I think i am going to sand it down a bit and paint a thin layer of white over it later but it was fun to try something new and think outside the box for decorating things.  Below is a photo of the things that i used for my project.  It's always good to see what new things others try so that you feel confident investing and trying it too.




Thanks so much for stopping by today on the Quietfire Blog to see what new from all of us to share and be sure and stop back for more summer projects!!
