Im currently taking a painting class working with acrylic paints. I have a loving family...Married to the same wonderful man for over 31 years.

Challenge #35 at Michelle perkett Studios

                                                                                                                                                                          Well back for another exciting challenge...
We were to use  punches (any kind, MS,
Spellbinders etc) and some sort of fussy cutting be it the image or cut a flower or design out of DP.

This is what I wanted to try.....An Explosion box!!! Its a card and gift in one, I haven't put an sentiment on it yet ....haven't decide what I want to use. There are many tutorials on YouTube on how to make these boxes.
I made my box bigger  then in the tutorials so that I could accommodate my  image.....All the flowers were from punches I have, (MS,EK,Sizzix)....This was so much fun to make and it really wasn't hard at all....after all the cutting I just had to assemble..
Paper: Core'dinations,white card stock.vellum,assorted DP
Punches:( MS hydrangeas, hydrangea's boarder, daisy boarder),(Daisy chain boarder,Sm and Med retro    flower all EK )

 Hope you enjoy !!

Well our Challenge this week was to use The Three P's
3 designer papers..... 3 pearls and 3element's with a color that begins with the letter P....
I choose to use Michelle's beautiful "Just breath Mermaid" which you can get at her Etsy shop......The three DP's I choose were from basic greys Kioshi  6x6 pad ..... the card stock is from core'dinations. 
The three elements I used were Rhinestone stickers from Recollections from Michael's.......Anna griffin brads and a sewing pin that I colored with my makers. I used my Triart and Copic markers and did some shading with prisma colored pencils

I  made a latch for the card and use the pin to keep the card closed .
