Rainbow Lady's challenge - Embossing

Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge this week we want you to do a bit of embossing, now that can be any kind and you can make anything so I decided that I would finally get around to doing this box.
My friend gave me the box after I had expressed an interest and it has been sitting in my drawer for quite a long time. I have painted it with acrylic paint, stamped and embossed with both gold and silver, I have also added some distress inks is several colours but it doesn't show very well in this picture, the box is actually a bit darker than it looks here.

I have added some self adhesive ribbon around the lid, the pearls were already on it, used a few pearls on the lid and thought I'd finished but it seemed to need something extra so, I dug out the gold leaf and added a bit of glue here and there and stuck the gold onto it. I am quite pleased with the result and find it funny how much time and effort this took to make it look old and worn.

I almost forgot to tell you that this week we are sponsored by the wonderful Joanna Sheen so please join in and you could win a voucher to spend in her shop.

CD Sunday - Just because

Hello all, this week on CD Sunday we are having an easy time of things and our theme is 'Just Because'. Well how easy is this you may ask,  well I couldn't make up my mind so decided to go for something that I'd not normally do.

I was browsing through my cd's and found this image on Joanna Sheen's Furry Friends cd, well you do have to smile at this wee frog so it was decided that I would use him.

I copied the image and put it into Craft Artist and added the words, I printed the backing paper and matted all of it up onto dark green card. I used my Martha Stewart punch to do the trim down the middle and finally added a big bow. I do hope you like my offering.
