Something Different (with lots of pics!)

Hi everyone, well as the title suggested i've created something a little different.... perfect for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge!! I'm also enetering it into this weeks A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge where the thme if 3-D :D Well, i've never gone O.T.T on my cards but i really wanted to make a box to complement a card i made yesterday that i was very proud of. It's using one of the cute pirate Tilda's one of blogging friends sent to me. For a change, i coloured her with pencils and only used promarkers for the skin tones! And i used colours i defiantly wouldn't use but there's so many combo's in my BG Sugar Rush pad i can experiment! Sorry for the amount of pics! :D

This is the card on it's own:

I kept the layout quite simple, only adding the odd pearls and bow on the side. And here's a close-up of how i've coloured Tilda: she looks so sweet! :D I've coloured her with pencils for a change and only used my usual of promarkers for the skin tones.

And this is the box on it's own, i forgot the exact measurements but next time i make one I'll write it down! They're really quite simple! xx

And that's it! Sorry for all teh pictures but the weather was glorious and i thought i might as well get a few good ones while i'm out there lol!! :D

Thanks for visiting me, i really appreciate it! Please leave a comment if you have time?? :D
