My project for Digistamps4Joy Challenge #43

You've seen the first set of DT project, and today we will show you the second set of projects these ladies created for challenge # 43 with the theme "June Bride - anything but a greeting card".
At first I thought urgh this is difficult, but then I started to think of all the little things we had to make for my daughters' wedding, and the creative juices flowed! One area of a wedding that is often neglected is the ablution room, and what better than to perk it up with a tissue box cover! So easy to make, yet so effective. Don't forget you must use a digistamp to enter the challenge, and if you use a DS4J stamp you will go into the draw for the $6 prize!
I  bought one of those little square tissue boxes, covered the base with a sheet of 12x12 scrapbooking paper cut into two strips and glued together, added some gorgeous vintage braid I had in my stash, and added a few pink pearls.
The image is called "Bridal Couture" and can be found in my shop at Digistamps4Joy.  As the dress is white I had very little colouring in to do, so edged all the lines with a light grey Spectrum Noire pen to give depth to the folds of the dress. The requisite bling was of course added to the veil. The top of the box was cut out of plain silver cardstock, a hole cut in the top and edged with the braid, and VOILA  .... a tissue box fit for the queen of the day! (Well actually, it's in my home now!)

Don't forget there are some super prizes for winners in the DS4J challenge, so head on over to our BLOG and enter your card in Mr Linky.
