CHF Challenge

Last night I decided to make a start on next weeks Cornish Heritage Farm Summer Challenge .
I have used their Lace background stamp to stamp onto a 12"x12" sheet of card, and now 'all' I have to do is to use it up making different things.

My first project was to cover a book box. I painted it black, covered the front and back with the lace stamped paper, and stamped wide cream ribbon for the spine.

It is now a jewellery box

I 'antiqued' it with coloured pewter metal leaf - from the same range you buy the gold leaf paper from - it looks lovely in the sunshine as it catches all the colours of the rainbow.

The Angel is a rub on, so too the saying. "Stay is a charming word in a friends vocabulary". The little butterfly I stamped on.

I love your metal leaf edging with this one Lottie, makes for a really vintage feel along with the lace and the angel - beautiful job!
