I have a little altered project today.
I was so fed up of looking at my boring pen pot.
This was created to enter Brendas 5th blogaversary.
If you haven't seen Brendas blog you are missing out on some beautiful pieces of artwork.
We have to share our all time favourite crafting item by entering a new piece of artwork using it.
If you have been following me for a while you will know that my favourite die is Caged bird by Tim Holtz so of course had to be used.
I covered a piece of white card using my favourite swirly butterfly stamp from Flourishes by Michele Marsden.
I love all types of swirls and this pack has a few very pretty ones.
Added some orange ric-rac along the top and bottom
I also love sparkle so used irridescent pearls and then covered them, the cage and leaves in holographic glitter.
Finished off with a flower, candi and blue ribbon.
No longer a boring old pot and I love how it turned out.
I am entering this into ...
