Imagination Craft's First Challenge

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Follower and Visitors

So excited today as my challenge blog Imagination Crafts Challenges goes live with it's first challenge.

I would love for you to visit and support my design team who have created some stunning pieces of work for our first challenge which is "Anything Goes".  Please be sure to read the rules and we look forward to seeing your creations.  Imagination Crafts have some fabulous stencils and their Sparkle Medium is superb to use.

Here is my project for which I hope will inspire you to have a go at our first challenge.


Paper mache box which I have painted with gesso and then stippled with beige acrylic paint I stenciled all around the bottom of the box using the Wild Flower stencil and Distress Ink Vintage Photo.


Using the Distress Ink vintage photo with the Honeycomb stencil.  I used Sparkle Gel and mixed Gesso with mixed beads and mica powder in bronze and stenciled the Butterfly corner from the Poppy Stencil.  I added two metal corners.  I wrapped brown ribbon around the lid and added a bird charm to the centre.


I cut out some card using Spellbinder Label 1 and spritzed with Imagination Spritz in Orange and Mica Spritzers, I then stenciled the Spring is Here stencil using Sparkle Medium Antique Bronze.


This is a close up of the corner.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
