Elephant Hanging Decoration

Helloooo to anyone calling in today.

A quick post today. Crafty Individuals are on Hochanda Tv Craft Channel today – (please see details below). They are launching some amazing new stamps designed by the very talented Ellie Mulligan. I have already posted some sneak peeks over on my card making blog here.  Also featured on the shows are a few of Linda Edwards Illustrations designed stamps. They are a firm favourite of mine and have been so for many years so its nice to see them on show. All of Linda’s designs can be seen here on the CI website.

This is a project I made for the show samples.

 

 

For the little stamped discs I used coated card stock, black Staz-on and diluted ink to colour. All of the discs have been spray fixed to give them a glossy finish.

I made 7 decorative discs but to be honest 5 would have looked nice. The size of the decorated discs are probably not far off an ATC coin. Actually this stamp set would make a lovely set of coins.

 

 

I also made a box to put them in.

 

 

I used a stencil and Memento ink to decorate the sides of the box.

For the lid panel, I have used most of the stamps in the set.  I used a black permanent ink and cream card for the base and coloured the image with Distress Inks and with diluted inks. I sprayed the lid piece three times with a fixative to give it a really nice shiny/glossy finish.  In real life it looks a bit like an enamel tile.

 

 

 

It wasn’t until I was sorting through the photos that I thought it would make a nice box to pop some flavoured tea bags in and give as a gift. Ooo! Great to decorate a wooden box. Might need to make one of those 🙂

I also thought that this image, by changing the colours, would be lovely on a gift box and a card for a baby or new Mum. So cute!
