Design Team Throwdown Entry

Well hellloooooo folks!

Hope you all feel better than me just now. Loaded with cold, cough too, and needing some kip, but hey-ho. On we go!!

This wee post then is my make for Delicious Doodles entry in the Design Team Throwdown

We happened to win it last month, and chose them theme 'Metal Mania'. Well, I thought it was a good theme, but we struggled a bit.

Here is my make then, a wee trinket box:

I have used regular black cardstock - yes folks - NO METAL AT ALL was used for this project!!

I used an exploding box lid template for making this box, but lengthened the edges to make a deeper box.

Lots of Spellbinders die cut shapes, and embossing.
Lots of metallic guilding wax in a brown and old gold colour.

Those are actually plastic hot fix false studs you can see there, just with some added wax too. Made them look like brads or nail heads. Just the job!!

I have used my Delicious Doodles image named
'Love's Faded Memory'
for the centre of the lid panel, and have added some wee pearls that were almost black, but have added some more of that waxy stuff

Believe me, these pics were difficult to get - I mean, how DO you get a good piccie of a hexagonal box without half of it being in a dark shadow??!!
I even tried it on a different colour cloth...


So there you have it folks!

Pop across to our Delicious Doodles Throwdown Entry Post for more yummy makes from the girls.

And after that, pop across to the Design Team Throwdown Blog and check out the other team entries.

And after that - on Friday - check back to that blog and VOTE for the best team makes that you think fulfilled the theme criteria

OMG..........are you freakin kidding me!!!!!!!!!! This is cardstock??? WOWWWWWWWWWWW WOWWWWWWWWW & another big fat WOWWWWWWWW. The third one was off my hubster lol. This is just awesome sweetie it really is. Hubster says it reminds him of the film Hellraiser with that puzzle box thing. This is just too cool for words & you should have this on show.........I want to touch it just to see if it really is metal or not lol.

Hope all is ok sorry I've not been by for a bit I really dont know where my time goes anymore, although I'm thinking knowing you you will be the same lol. Take care sweets mmwah.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
