Another Exploding Box and card

Hello to all, well my first exploding box went well and has been bought, I have orders  for a mothers day one and this for my mother in laws sister so it took the best part of five hours to make it but this is the finished box.

The theme was of cause butterfly's and dragonfly's
I hope she likes it.

If i get enough people wanting to I will do a tutorial on making the basic lay out.

Last for tonight i made this commissioned card and I just loved it, when looking at the topper and the paper I thought of black.
The kit is from kanban so feminine.

Any way that is a little bit of what I have done on some time off from work.
Please leave me a comment on the tutorial.
All feedback welcome

Bleached affect cards

Today I have had time to play in my craft room having ago at something different,
I made these cards from an idea in craft Stamper by Annie Watkins.
So thought I would post how I have done the project and maybe others will have a go.

 1. Stamp a distress ink pad directly on to card stock.
 2. Once dried stamp on a image that fits the square using stazon ink.
 3. Being very careful using bleach and a pain brush, brush on the bleach inside the image, this will change the colour of the distress ink.
 4. cut an acetate sheet to the same size as the square and fix to with a dab of glue to each corner, affix a gem or pearl to each corner to cover the glue. Stamp a simple sentiment in the corner.
 5. You can do all this straight onto a card blank and leave it simple but I do like a little bit of mat and layering so I put mine onto black card then on to a card blank.
Finished card.

Now to have a look at some finished ones.

I hope you all enjoyed my little tutorial, I will do some more soon and hope to get better at it.
