DSC #82 "Anything but a Card"

Welcome to this week's DT project for Digitally Sweet Challenges! DSC has weekly craft challenge that's all about digital! If you love scrapping and cardmaking with digital images, then come join us!

This week we are sponsored by Lunagirl Images. Lunagirl was kind enough to supply us DT members with some gorgeous vintage-y images to work with and here is what I made for you...a box:

It's always nice to have a cute little box onhand for little last minute Mother's Day or birthday gifties. This box is 4" x4" and made of kraft card. I printed and cut out 3 of Lunagirl's images then distressed the edges in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I adhered them to the lid with matt medium, which I think turned out nice as I just LOVE the matt non shiny look. I took a piece of natural sponge and dabbed around the box with watered down Black Soot Distress Ink. I edged and dabbed the whole outside of the box to match.

I took more of the kraft card and made 3 flowers, 2 rolled ones and 1 with a Tonic flower punch. Those got distress and dabbed with the sponge as well. I added tiny Mulberry Crafts rosebuds that I coloured with a waterbrush and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Lastly I tucked in a little brass key.

It came together so quick and easy, hope you like it!
