Well it's time once again for another fantastic challenge over at ABC and already we are up to the letter O, and this time the lovely Julie has chosen the colour Orange. I must admit that I feel pretty much the same way about orange as I do yellow (it scares me!). Anyway I have given it my best shot, and actually I really enjoyed the challenge, if the truth be known I got a bit carried away.
I haven't made a book box card for years but they seem to be popping up everywhere so I thought I'd give it another try. There are loads of tutorials out there including one in the Magnolia Ink mag so why not have a go.
I chose to use the beautiful Tilda with Ballet Shoes from the 2012 Princes and Princesses Collection as well as Pink Tilda Ice/Ballet Princess and her shoes from the 2008 Pink Collection. I wanted a softer look for this little cutie so I used Desert Sand Memento instead of my regular black. Once again I coloured with my trusty Promarkers and Prisma Pencils
The gorgeous DP's are from the Boho Chic collection from First Edition.
I used some beautiful ruched lace to frame my oval and added pearls to just about everything. All edges were distressed with Pumice Stone DI and then topped with Diamond Stickles. I also used my 2 fave Memory Box dies, Elegant Scroll and the fabulous Catalina Wreath. I hand pricked most edges to create a faux stitch line for more detail.
I chose to fill much of the box cavity with some more gorgeous flowers and the fab sentiment is from the new Papermania Wellington collection.
