Paperbabe Stamps June release Blog Hop ~ Surprise Box

Welcome to our June release Blog hop...
everyone is loving the new stamps and templates, as of course am I.
This smaller size can fit in all sorts of projects, I have so many ideas.

Onto my little project...
After I painted the mdf in a couple of coats in prussian blue, I then heat embossed the face and neck in gold powder and with the wonderful perfect medium pen I used the templates to draw the hair, and set the embossing powder for each step. Love the contrast of colours...
Tada I bet you weren't expecting this to be a box...
...you see I had the idea of paper piecing this hairstyle but needed something to hold the dimension and ended up laser cutting myself this box frame based on the MDF ornate frame.
I've used distress papers for all the solid colours and some vintage pattern K&Co paper for her clothing.
I stamped the face in distress oxides so that it wouldn't be too dark on the papers, I have used coloured pencils to add shade to her face and skin and a black pen to bring her eyes and lashes alive.
I edged the inside of the frame with gold ink to coordinate with the embossing on the lid. I certainly had much fun creating this, I love that it can be hidden back inside it's box, good to protect the papers I guess.



Here's the hop line up...

Enjoy a wonderfully creative day
