Over The Rainbow

Aurora Wings

Anything Goes #75  

Time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings and this month the theme is Over The Rainbow and I have used the adorable BLEEDING HEART SPRITE DIGITAL STAMP chosen because she has 7 Bleeding Heart petals, one for each colour of the rainbow :)

I recycled the box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates I bought to fill my Christmas cracker project (well sort of recycled as I had to buy another box just to fill this one hahaha) ready to give my daughter for her Birthday.  When looking at the box I loved the moulded design and wondered what it would look like with a background behind it and WOW, I love how it added so much texture and light to the simple rainbow coloured colouring I did with Distress Oxides, so simple and yet so effective.  The sprite was coloured with Promarkers and Prismacolour pencils then fussy cut and added to the front of the box.  A simple flower die cut border finished off the ground she was standing on perfectly.  The final finishing touches of the bow from a scrap bundle of ribbon I bought and a chipboard Happy Birthday sentiment coloured with Promarkers completed this project.

Natasha's birthday has been and gone now and she loved her decorated box and the yummy contents inside :) a great success.

Items Used:-
  • Promarkers, Prismacolour pencils, Distress Oxides

  •  chipboard sentiment, ribbon, die cut border and chocolate box complete with mouth watering chocolates!!!
