Those Crafty Secret stamps are GORGEOUS! (If you are looking for them, check out SweetMissDaisy’s online store. She has lots of gorgeous Crafty Secrets merchandise. ) I had to try out my new Cherub set.
I wanted to write this tutorial for my blog since two fresh and fun freebies ago. Well…today I took pictures for it. I thought I share the final project with you now….and then write the tutorial. I hope to have it posted tonight!
This is the top view of the box. I love that little Cherub. I got the set because my MIL LOVES cherubs. Loves them, loves, them, LOVES THEM. (you know….we crafters never run out of excuses why we need something!) I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did. The set comes with some three adorable cherubs, smaller swirls (like the corner ones on top and the middle edges of the lid) as well as bigger ones ( box bottom), angel wings, the word Love and a heart.
I stamped my little cheeky cherub on watercolor paper with black Palette ink. It really works well with acrylic stamps. Much better then black stazon. Then I colored the cutie in with blush blossom for his skin, skin shading and wings with pretty in pink, hair with more mustard and close to cocoa, book with creamy caramel and surrounding space with bashful blue classic ink and aqua painter (all Stampin’ Up! products). I sprayed my watercolor paper with my water mist bottle before I started coloring. I layered the image on on a black Mega Oval Scallop punchout from Urchida.
The lid top is made with Tres Jolie paper from My Mind’s Eye. I can’t wait for Daisy and Joy to get their My Mind’s Eye order into their store!!!!
The bottom of the box is made with Always Artichoke cardstock by Stampin’ Up!. I stamped the bigger swirl on it with Black VersaMagic Dew Drop ink.
I cut the lid edges with a scallop scissor and added the scallop border stamp with the Black Dew drop.
