Tuesday DCRU Challenge!

Already time for the next challenge at Die Cuts R Us DT's blog. This week's challenge is to use "other medias", for instance you can use paint, inks, pens, chalks, markers, glitter, mists, etc. This also includes using these on embossed images (if you have embossers) or on die cuts to bring them to "life". Its a chance to play with your die cuts and all of your other goodies that may not come out of the craft box that often. My wonderful DT buddy Gwen is hosting this week's challenge.

So this week I decided to make a pillow box. I'm really into girly colors right now:



Mom got me the die cut pillow box at The Scrappy Gourmet. I used Core'dinations White Wash paper and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I then sanded my embossing and ran ink over the entire piece of paper with Martha Stewart Ink. I added some Tulle and Flowers from The Little Pink Studio, more ribbon, and blingy button & jewel. I used my Cuttlebug & Spellbinder Nestabilities. I also used stamps from Papertrey Ink.

Here's a close-up:



Be sure to stop by DCRU DT Blog and look at the amazing projects from the DT. And be sure to participate and leave a link to your creation!

Enjoy.
