This Weeks Challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Be a Star!
we are Sponsored by Crafters Companion
I have made a card and some little boxes for this challenge, Its my son's Birthday on the 16th Jan and I wanted to make a couple of little boxes for some small gifts, and I wanted to have a bit of a play and get a bit grungy on his card as he is doing design for GCSE's… I saw a card oh must be a good couple of years ago and LOVED it to bits and have Cased the card for my base design but when my PC crashed last year I lost the links to where the card was… I had the card in a LOVE this Album on my pc but did not have the link…. as I save links on my Bookmarks…
SO thank you to the person who gave me the inspiration and if its you PLEASE email me so I can add a link and give you the proper credit too!

Ok soooo I have used a scallop border punch and have distressed it with black soot distress ink, All the black on the card is glaze pen that I have doodled and the stars on the card as from some Really OLD tags that had paper centres that I have binned the centres and kept the metal outer, I have had the tags since I started crafting about 6 years ago! ekk! the Background dots is metallic paint through a piece of dotty Ann tape, and I used my circle nesties as a stencil for the black circles, My son’s Name and age are cut from recycled card and embossing in pale blue.
The boxes are similar to these but I have made them on a metric Scor pal and had to work out how to convert the tutorial as the one Here as the tutorial was for an open box I wanted to make mine close so use the Cropodile to punch the holes so I could thread the twine through and finished with some Magic Mesh and a matching tag.
These are the challenges I am entering with todays Projects
