Hi there! Last Friday night I got together with some fellow demonstrators, and we decided to give ourselves a stamping challenge…it was a tricky one, and shortly you'll know why! You may have noticed through reading my blog that I really struggle with using bright colors…I prefer the light pastels or rich earthy tones any day, brights just aren't up my alley ya know?
So here was the challenge…first, use the Big Shot (my favorite thing to do, that'll be a snap!), second, create a box (I love creating boxes and 3d items, so I thought this was going to be a cake-walk!!), and third…use Bold Brights (uh oh, I NEVER use Bold Brights colors, unless it's Christmas and I break out the Real Red! This could be a problem!!!)
So after a glass (or two) of wine one night, I decided to embrace the challenge and whipped up this box shown below. It's similar to other Top Note boxes you've seen, but usually they're made with a top and a bottom that fit together, and I made mine one box with a cover that flipped open.
I was pretty pleased with myself when I finished the box, feeling like I had met the challenge…until the next day when I realized I needed to make 3 more of those boxes, and the chicken scratch on my grid paper made no sense without wine!!!! Well I finally figured it out and completed the rest of my boxes…here they are:
