This fortnights challenge 'Winged Creatures' has been chosen by Christine.
I just love how this chest turned out. I found the pattern for the chest in a laser cutting site and the owl design as a free to use image. With the tools I needed I then set to designing the box with the owls, name area and the trees behind the owls. The design goes around the 4 sides of the box and was a devil to work out so the tree branches flowed properly. Once designed, I etched and cut the design on my laser then wood stained the box leaving the owls and the band around the name take unstained - boy did that require a bit of a steady hand and lots of patience as the wood stain bleeds very easily through the wood grain. After that it was onto further sanding, varnishing, sanding again, assembling and then a final coat of varnish. This box was for my daughter Natasha for her 40th birthday, smiles all round as she just loved it :)

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :) do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)
I thought I would give no line colouring a go digitally using Procreate and aim for a very loose watercolour effect. Not sure I achieved any of that lol but it was a great learning exercise and super fun. The image used is DAFFODIL FAIRY by IKEsART.
