I am super excited to share my first post for PCW Blog today with all of you. I chose Roses Two Double cutting file but as I don’t own a electronic cutting machine. I have used my Sizzix BigShot which is a manual cutting machine to die-cut the image in oval. Just to let you know the files listed on PCW website can not only be used as a cutting file but you can even cut them by scissors or use a manual cutting machine and you can still create amazing products.
I have distressed the whole box in a single tone and then stenciled with the a bit darker shade. I have added an oval die-cut in the middle and embellished the two round corners with some paper flowers.
Butterflies and label die-cuts are by Sizzix. I have used ‘Wild Honey’ for distressing the butterflies.
To add some bling, I have added silver rhinestones on the edge of the box cover.
For coloring the image I have used the following Distress Markers..
- Aged Mahogany
- Victorian Velvet
- Peeled Paint
- Shabby Shutters
- Wild Honey
- Scattered Straw
