Stampotique Designers challenge

I am so excited this morning to share with you my first DT creation for the brand new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers challenge blog.

Kim is challenging you to think about love/Valentine in your creation.. This week feel free to use ANY stamps at your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for stamps at the Stampotique store. Hope you can join us.

Here is my little altered gift box..

I started out will a basic heart shaped box & covered the sides with crackle paint..

 I then stamped 5508 Lovebirds from Stampotique Originals onto white cardstock.

I googled lovebirds on the internet to check the colouring & coloured the image using Copic pens..

and then added some gorgeous flowers & ticket from my craft box.

Thank you for calling & leaving a comment if you get the chance. 

Please remember to pop over to Stampotique Designers challenge blog to see the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team & our special Guest Designer.

Happy crafting, Gez ♥
