New challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

For this month the challenges over at Eclectic Ellapu are for the Pink team '' Floral'' and for the Purple is ''It's a man thing''.

Seeing as I am part of the pink team my quest was floral.  

I wanted to make something practical so I started out with 2 4x4'' box lids and a vaping liquid bottle - perfect for a tiny vase and a oddment of chipboard for the base.  I painted the whole lot pink, added crackle medium and then painted over using a grey chalk paint.  I allowed it to crackle and then set about decoupaging paper napkins over the insides of the lids, bottle and base.  I finished off using glossy varnish.  I joined the lids using pink ribbon and stuck the lids and bottle to the chipboard base. I used a variety of pink paper roses and some small leaves cut from an applique.  The point of having such a small vase is for those daisies the grandchildren pick - I now have something to put them in lol.  

Now for the pics and hope you like it

Please head on over and join in with the fun over at Eclectic Ellapu
