ShOCk HorRoR i ALteREd soMEtHinG

This project came about for a couple of reasons... one was that i had been set a kinda challenge to make a Stitchels Rose..{see Here for details} and being as that i hadn't partaken in the Sunday Stamper for soooo long {this week the theme being roses} i decided to have a go, i used Grungepaper for the first time too!
The other reason for the piece was that my DT position for The Artistic stamper had been seriously neglected of late, what with all the cuteness i've been caught up in lol...So i wanted to create a fun project only using all the fabby things you can find at AS online {tin excluded, although there are some other tins available}
And here's what i came up with...

The paper i used is from the old world stack of DCWV, i then stamped square wire to give it a bit more interest {my pics are a bit crappy sorry but its the brick wall looking bit i'm on about!} anyway, i then stamped Poppy Cat directly over the wall. I stamped the nature vine in versamark and dusted with some of the yummy mica pearlescent powders, i used the same mica powders mixed with a little water to cover some grungepaper, i then stamped the vine again on top and cut out the leaves and swirls and added this too the vine to add dimension.
I punched holes and attached blue eyelets at either end of my paper, wrapped it round the tin and laced it up with black ribbon.
I used the nature stamps again for the words, which i stamped with blue distress inks onto white pearl card and cut out and inked the edges.
The grungepaper roses are the Stitchels as mentioned above.
And that's your lot...
i think...
Sorry its late and i'm fairly tired but am waiting up for my dear OH to return from work.
Had a pretty full day.. well i say full coz it took me all day to create a 4 tier wedding cake gift box with i will be blogging over the weekend and to dye my hair back to a "normal" colour for the wedding.. the bride didn't want her bridesmaid to have pink hair, especially as there wearing red as the accent colour!
Hugs and thanks for stopping by xx
