Tissue Box Cover

I've got another non-card project to share with you today.

Way back in February this year a group of my crafting pals and I travelled to Accrington and did a workshop at Topaz Crafts with Rachael of Dark Room Door Stamps.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable workshop and during a bit of retail therapy in Topaz's store, I picked up a pack of supplies to make tissue box covers.  I decided it was about time I had a go at one and today's project is my first attempt.

I used Distress Inks in Bundled Sage, Pumice
Stone and Walnut Stain to decorate the white base card and some sets of DRD stamps.

Here's a closer view of one of the sides of the cover, I wanted to create the effect of the cabin nestling in the countryside.

This is a view of one of the shorter ends of the cover, I added a different sentiment to the other side.

It was fun playing with the Distress Inks and getting messy and the various DRD foliage stamps were ideal for building up a scene.

Hope you like it, I shall be trying another one of these covers real soon, maybe using some different colours.

I'm away for a crafty play weekend with pals, so have pre-scheduled this to post on Saturday morning, hope it works OK !!!  Tomorrow (Sunday) we are planning to go to Artstamps at Newbury Racecourse and fingers crossed we'll be meeting a few more crafty pals there - it promises to be a FUN day !! 

Thanks for dropping by, I may have piccies to share of our weekend's frolics later !
