Its finally here...Clarity Challenge time...Anything goes !!!!

Well diddly doodly happily dancily - ITS TIME!!!!
The Clarity challenge blog launch is finally

Click on the link above and go take a look at the totally fantabulous offerings from the Design Team. We have all been beavering away to come up with a whole range of projects to hopefully inspire you - this months theme is Anything goes. Thats just it - anything at all whatever takes your fancy as long as its Clarity. (check out the full RULES here)

This is my offering the Poppy Heart Box....

I utilised the Tall wild poppies and the Wild poppies bottom stamps and a tissue stamping technique to decorate the sides of the box which I had painted out with a combination of cream/pink/brown acrylic paint.
The top of the box was direct stamped and coloured using copic markers before all being fixed and sealed with Glue 'n' Seal
Embellishments were kept simple - just a little lace some pale pink dew drops and some shell at the base.
The metal work was tinted gold with gilding wax - and that was that - a pretty delicate box for all your trinkets, nick nacks and secret sweetheart notes !!! (Ok ok ok who am I kidding - def not in this house - rofl !!!)

I hope you like my offering - myself and the rest of the Design Team canny wait to see your awesome projects - SO no dillydallying let your mojo run amok !!  The weekends here, grab a brew, ENJOY and get happy crafty!!!
I am off now to get my prep finished for tomorrow's demo day at Crab Apple Crafts. If you are in the Frodsham area why not pop along and say Howdy - lots of lurvely crafty things going on!!
