Altered Box

Good Morning, Peggy here!    Who knew a crown royal box could look so pretty!.. lol My husband received a huge bottle of alcohol for Christmas so, I stole  er um , recycled the box!  Here is my box turned gelato tray. Today I used my eBrush by Craftwell USA.
http://www.craftwellusa.com
Items I used: 
An empty box
 this one is a sturdy one.
eBrush
Markers
Sandpaper
Patterned cardstock
Double sided tape
fruit cup/recycled
Inks

I covered my box in patterned paper using double sided tape. Each side is a separate panel. I used Blue and Green alcohol markers in my eBrush and sprayed all edges of the box. I cut a hole that would fit my recycled fruit cup. Next I sprayed the edges of the hole to cover the rough edges.  I used sandpaper to make the edges smoother to the surface of the box.

I loved this paper so much I have been hoarding it for quite some time. So I decided to make something to sit on my desk and hold my gelato's and since it is still a working box I may make a drawer on one end. Perhaps in the near future. I also used some distress inks to cover the whites of the edges I could still see and to give it an aged look.

I plopped down the fruit cup that I colored the edges of  and whalla! pretty instant gratification.
Now I get to look at my pretty paper every day.


I hope you are having a terrific day! Come check out the eBrush by Craftwell USA

eBrushed Hummingbird Tin

 Hello! Peggy here to show you my eBrushed Tin. 
After Christmas I am left with empty tins from caramels and chocolates
and  I am recycling one of those tins. I painted my tins before spraying. 
Today I used my eBrush by Craftwell with stenciling and masking of some hummingbirds. 
 I chose purple , blue and green alcohol markers to achieve this.  My stencils and masks were cut out of red vinyl.

The tin color is red and green and when I scratch around my images the original red paint of the tin shows through.  

I hope you enjoyed looking at what you can do with your eBrush. You can find the tools used today HERE

Amazingly Loving Tags..

 Happy Monday! Peggy here to show you my tags made with Susan K Weckesser stamps.
I love teal....  Susan's stamps are so cute and can be used in so many different ways.  I made some tags with background stamps and ephemera paper (thank you Lynne Mizera)   Grin..
I used Journal Doodles with a Heart stamps set and Love Ya Whole Bunches and Live Love Create paper. I stamped my images with Memento Black Ink to ensure they wouldn't smudge when coloring with alcohol markers. I cut out all images and mounted them on my background tags using foam dots and double sided tape.

 Metal embellishments, Wooden embellies, Inks and Stamps. What more could a girl want. 


Tags are so much fun and inspirational. I love to hang them on my walls but usually give them away. 


Stamps and Paper used today are supplied by Susan K Weckesser Inc. You can find her on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and her Blog!
Have a great day!!
Warmly,

Susan K Weckesser Tags of Love

 Hello everyone! I am back with more self love that I am planning on sharing with these bright tags made with Susan K Weckesser Stamps Journal Doodles with a Heart Set.

I started with my background on my tags regular shipping tags. I chose two different mediums.
Gelato's and Ink Sprays. The top tag has sprays for the background color and the bottom tag is colored with gelato's and water. I stamped my images with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heat to set.
 I added lots of embellishments and backed up the tags with strong cardstock. I adhered all embellishments with crystal lacquer.


I love it!

I hope you enjoyed today's tags. Thank you for looking and have a Happy New Year Everyone!
