4The whole reason I started this blog was so that I could enter some challenges and so far I have entered zero challenges. For some strange reason I thought I would have some free time with my three year old being at nursery a few hours a couple of days a week but my one year old has taken over on the needing your every last ounce of attention or the tantrums start tehe aren't they so funny! Anyway I love the burtonesque blog and was determined to enter at least one of the challenges so I MADE the time, holding a baby in one arm and my mod podge in the other hehe.
Not the best picture you will ever see but I have lost my wire for my proper camera and had to use the webcam. This is an old box of chocolates that I painted with blue/silver paint then stippled some green and blue (in the spirit of the corpse bride). I then cut out a circle from glitter paper for the moon and added some cosmic shimmer to rub around it. I also coloured the flowers with the same blue cosmic shimmer. The sentiment says "You may kiss the bride" the idea is to put maybe a sexy nightie with some lip gloss for the bride (from the groom).
The image I drew and coloured with copics and promarkers but the paper I used wasn't the good stuff (I can't find the proper card in amongst my craft stuff at mo). The ink bled a little but hopefully not too much to have ruined it. The sentiment I printed out then used distress inks to age it and blur the writing then scraped some scissors around the edges, the card backing (was from a cardstack), I did the same for this. You can't see it but at the bottom of the bouquet there is a snake charm.
Anywho a bit long winded for what it actually is, hope it is in spirit of the corpse bride.
