New Challenge #77 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hi there,
Well I think its nearly official that
my arm is falling off,
 I'm still trying to work my way through 
my friends Die collection
(you should see my floor on a night!!!)
But at least I know I won't have to do 
much cutting for the next few months.
Bad thing is I keep coming across Dies 
that I love and I want for my own,
think this is becoming very expensive lol...

Anyway here is my project this Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Use Some Blue

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Crafty Sentiments who are offering
3 Images from their store

The Doodle Garden who are offering
3 Images from their store


Stamping Boutique who are offering
3 Images from their store or
4 Images if winner used 
a Stamping Boutique Image

QKR Stampede who are offering
5 Images from their store

My project for this week is:-

Lillipond Frog Digi Stamp 
from Crafty Sentiments 
(one of our sponsors)




Today I felt like making a Box,
so to begin with I chose 2 pieces of Card.
For the Base of the Box I used 
8" x 8" Blue Linen Card
(stash).
 And for the Top of the Box I used 
8" x 8" 'Reeds' Linen Card
(Riverbank Revels - Helz Cuppleditch).
And using The Ultimate Crafter's Companion
I scored and folded the card using the 3rd rows
for the Box Lid and Base.
Then cut the corners so that 
I could Glue them together.

Next I Die-Cut out a Square

using the largest 3 parts of the Square Lily (7pc)
(Nellie Snellen - MDF 029)
on Light Blue Paper 
(stash).
Then I Die-Cut out the Image 
so that it would fit inside the Blue Paper.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Frog -             Meadow Green
                                     Apple
                                     Grass
               Bee -              Yellow
                                     Black
                                     Ice Grey 2
               Bullrush -       Pear Green
                                     Moss
               Stone -           Shale
                                     Burnt Sienna
                                     Cinnamon 
                                     Sandstone 
                                     Cool Grey 1
               Water -           Pastel Green
                                     Pastel Blue
                                     Cool Aqua

Next I placed the Corner Pieces that were
left over from making the Base of the Box,
in each of the corners of the Lid.
Then went around the edge of the Lid 
and across the corners,
with White Peel Off Strips
(stash).

I put a touch of glitter on the Image 
to make the 'Bubbles' pop out
Ice Blue on the white part,
Royal Blue in the water
(Glitz it Sparkles Glitter Glue).
And to make the Water 'Bubble',
I used Seafoam White 
Heat Embossing Powder
(Papermania)

I used Light Blue Flat-Back Mini Gems

in the centre of each 'Lily' on the Blue Paper.
And 2 Blue Plastic Roses
(stash)
for opposite corners of the Lid.
