May Arts Challenge Winner

May Art's challenge this month was to create with their new retro color selection.  I was lucky enough to be selected to participate in this challenge and these are my creations:

In Grandma's Trunk - I found this little wood box and knew it be a wonderful starting point for something!!!

So I pulled out some lovely Art Anthology paints and created Grandma's Trunk.  I used an older Sizzix die to create the dress form, dressed her with a pink dress and added tulle for the base of the dress which was tied with May Arts ribbon.

The doily was spritzed with Art Anthology Patience Spray which allowed it to become stronger so it could be manipulated without tearing.  The pink PomPom ribbon from May Arts was adhered around the box with ScraPerfect Adhesive.  A string of "pearls" and some flowers finished my project.

My second project was a mini gift card and candy bar wrapper.  I think the ribbon colors were perfect with this SEI pattern paper.  The stamps are Hampton Arts and ColorBox Mini stamps and wee inked with ColorBox Ink.  And who wouldn't love to pull a candy bar out of this wrapper? 

Thanks for stopping by today.
