Club Scrap Blog Hop: Orchard

Well hello again.  Time for the monthly blog hop.  This month's kit was Orchard, a lovely collection of fruit and beautiful artwork.  So glad you are hopping along.  But just to make sure all is well, you should have arrived from  Jennifer or to start at the beginning Click Here.

Ok for my project.  Decided to do something besides cards and this kit is perfect for my project.  Lets take a look.

Recipe box!!

Acrylic Recipe Box

I started by creating a box for the inside to give it some color.  Using the box I made a template and cut out my paper.

Assembled,  This just slips into the box and will hold the artwork.

I started out by stamping the image with Ground Expresso Distress Ink.  then using the markers as a watercolor, colored them in.  Used a fine line black for details.  I was after a watercolor/pastel look.
this was then inked further and trimmed down .

The front panel was a combination of digital and stamping.  I used Photoshop and found a font that matched close enough to the kit's for my name and "recipe".  Cut this down to match the size of the box and stamped in the apples.  This was on White cardstock.  I used distress and as little water as possible to color the image.  Then Inked it with ground expresso to cut down on the "white glare".

The cards:

I created the recipe cards and then imported the digital images onto these cards.  I also created a blank card and stamped the fruit.  These I colored with distress markers, the same way as the lid.

Lastly I created the dividers.  I used left over paper from many kits, cut the tabs and laminated with my Minc.

These are the dies I used and I am not sure what company produced them.  I believe Lawn Fawn.  Sizzix has a similar one, Item #656629, folder tab dies.  My Favorite things has a similar one as well.  

Well that is all for me today.  Your next stop is:  Cheryl

Happy Crafting,
