Monochrome with the Craft Room

The Craft Room's 2nd challenge for 2013 is a fab one and it is kindly given to us by my design team friend, Esther and we are this fortnight sponsored by Tando Creative.


I have decorated a Woodware box and album with a friendship theme - this will go down south to my friend Sall.
I painted the box and album with black and cream acrylic paints using a crackle medium to achieve the cracked look.  Papers used are from an old DCWV pad. Details of the clock die cuts are below.  I backed the large clock with book pages and black pearls from an old bracelet. The cream card has been been embossed with a fleur-de-lys embossing folder.

Friendship stamp quotes read:-
Happiness is time spent with a Friend
Friendship cannot be measured only treasured
Good friends are always in fashion

I have used a selction of stamps including:-  Rogue Redhead, Elusive Images, Crafty Individuals and Marianne Designs.  Die cuts used are the new Marianne-Design clock CR1234, hearts LR0159 and paper-tape-silhouettes-PT23010. The vintage image in the middle of the clock has had crackle accents added.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Stamping Sensations - Friendship

Dream Valley Challenges -Girls, girls, Girls

Creative Moments - Monochrome

Stay safe on your feet everyone, looks like all snow and slush frozen over night. Suzanne x
