Crafter's Companion - 'Florence'

Good morning!
Happy Tuesday to you all.

I'm sharing my first creation for Crafter's Companion today!

Please be gentle with me, as this is my first ever time to watercolor something other than a background. It was SO much fun coloring with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers.  
Hopefully, I'll improve, as I work with them during the next several months!

Here is what I made, using these Crafter's Companion products:

Spectrum Aqua Markers - Purple, Aquamarine, Peach, Crimson, Moss, Burgandy, Tan

I used Crafter's Companion Silver Starlight and Coastal Pearl Shimmering Cardstock.
They cut like butter, score like butter, and shimmer so beautifully!

This is the adorable stamp set that was used.
Meet 'Florence' from the Angelica & Friends Collection.

Making this box was incredibly easy. With the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool, anyone can make the perfect box, and it works up so quickly! There is a groove in the scoreboard for the box, and another for the lid. 

The beautiful wavy border on the lid was also created using the Ultimate Tool.
The border was scored, and using scissors, I trimmed just under the score line. A bit
of Washi Tape and bling from my stash finished this box perfectly.

As I mentioned earlier, coloring the image was super fun. I stamped the image and heat embossed it, to help me keep my coloring in the lines. Then I just scribbled on an acrylic block, and picked up color with a water brush.

Hope that you like this sweet box!
I'll be back next week with another fun creation for Crafter's Companion.

Until then...

Your box is just beautiful, Patti! I love the colors you chose, too. I think your water coloring looks fabulous, especially given it's your first time to water color something other than a background. You really rocked the Ultimate Tool today, dear friend!
