April challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Good morning folks,

Two posts from me this morning, this second one being this month's DT piece for Rhedd's Creative Spirit.

I took a tea box I've had for a little while. Being immensely fond of tea, I'd been dithering over playing with it, because I din't want to mess it up. Luckily I am very pleased with how it turned out!

I just love the way this technique turned out... I spread texture paste through a stencil and pained over the top. Highlighting one side with a black distress marker and then smudging it out with my finger really makes the design pop.

The very truest of sentiments...

I die-cut this cup from board, painted and stamped, then added crackle accents over the top. Edge with marker and smudge, and work ink into the cracks.

A piece of jewellery I rescued from the bin at work!

Now all I need is to find some teabags I like enough to keep in the box (I'm very much a loose-leaf kinda girl)

Now it's your turn, go check out the blog for more inspiration, then come play along! Just remember it's anything altered art goes, so no cards please!

I'd really like to play along at the Creative Artiste challenge this month!

Have a fantabulous day!
