Paperbabe Picture Inspiration Challenge


Today begins a New Challenge over at Paperbabe Stamps Blog and the theme is a Colour Picture Inspiration and it's perfect for this time of year


I wanted to upcycle an Instant Mash Tin to use as a craft tool pot so using some lush Paperbabe Stamps and some of my craft stash this is what I did

 
I have used 'Mayleedee Witchily' stamp for the main image on my project which I have coloured using some of my Copic Markers


Hair: R27, R17, R08, YR07
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Eyes & Book: YG67, YG63
Lips: E09, E04
Hat: E44, E43, E41
Blouse & Hatband: E44, E43
Skirt: E43, E41
Cat: N5, N3, R02
Background: YR24, YR23, YR21


I trimmed a large piece of cream cardstock which I stamped using the Leaf stamp and some of the smaller Conker elements from the 'Completely Conkers' set in various shades of distress inks to match the colours in the Inspiration Picture, I also added a few speckles using pale distress ink and the small splat stamp from the 'Watercolour Alphabet' set.

I wrapped a strip of frayed burlap around the top of the tin for texture


Ive diecut the coloured Image using a circle die and matted this onto a diecut doily circle, I attahed this circlar topper to the front of the covered tin and embellished using some colour matching paper flowers and some diecut flourishes. Lastly I punched a tag wich I tapped on the sentiment from the 'Mayleedee Witchily' set and the Autum sentiment from the 'Completely Conkers' set

Don't forget to join in the Paperbabe Challenge over on the Blog and why not join the Facebook Paperbabe Fan Group

I hope you like my upcycling project and hope you visit again soon
