Funky Fairys Challenge #6 ~ Blue

Good Morning Everyone!! I hope you are all well. It's challenge 6 over on Funky Fairys Challenges and this week we would like you to use 'Blue' on your creation. Remember you don't have to make a card you could alter something, do a scrap page, ATC...etc, anything you imagination desires, all we ask is that you use at least one Funky Fairy papercrafts item on your creation, to be in with a chance of winning the prize. Which this week is a fabby FF download kit and a beautiful clock made by our very own Emma using FF papercraft items, it's so gorgeous and I'm well gutted I can't have the chance to win it.

The DT have had real fun this week and the creations are varied and all wonderful, so be sure to take a peek. And this week we welcome our Guest Designer to the funky bunch, Lorraine.

Here's my DT creation for the challenge:

I've altered what was a plain wooden box (available from The Range for 99p). I made this in mind that it would be perfect for a man, my man in fact, as he's always leaving bits 'n' bobs around, but my fellow DT's think it's far to good for a man to have and it was even suggested by my fellow DT and buddy Emma, that a margarine tub would be more appropriate for his bit 'n'

Anyway, I painted the box, using blue twinkling H2O's, then lightly sanded it before going over the top with a dark blue marker, this made it darker where it was sanded heaviest but still allowed the metallic effect of the paint to show through. I've then added paper panels using papers from the FF 'Love Train' kit. The lettering was cut from one of the papers on my cuttlebug using the 'Hippy Chic' alphabet dies. Once each letter was stuck down I went around the edge of the letters with a blue sakura glaze pen. To finish I made a hole through the front of the lid and added a 'Pliers' charm with a brad for the handle. I used a little superglue in the hole, to give it more of a firm hold. Below is the open box, with some bits 'n' bobs in:

If you are not familiar with Funky Fairy papers then please pay a visit to Funky Fairy Inspirations where you will find some gorgeous free downloads towards the bottom of the sidebar list, and if you hurry Shaz has a fabby free download kit available for a few days only, so don't miss it. You can also purchase kits from the Funky Fairys Papercrafts Shop.

I do hope you'll join us this week for our challenge, we love to visit your blogs and see your creations, and why not tell your friends about it too, everyone is welcome. And below is that gorgeous clock kindly donated by Emma as an extra prize for this weeks challenge.

Now who wouldn't want to win that? Enjoy your day everyone xxx
