singing the blues...


The RubberNecker challenge this week was dark blue, light blue and a neutral color. You would think having boys I would use alot of blues, but I really seem to stay away from the true blue shades. I have a stash of aqua paper, but not awhole lot of navy.


When I first saw this jack in the box stamp the first thing I thought was how cute it would be cut apart and make it 3D. The box I created myself by stamping onto a 1 wide strip of pattern paper, cutting out the stars and moons and simply folding it. There is no actual bottom or top to the box, and it doesn't really need it. The spring was created from thick wire twisted around a pen. The pom-pom on the top of the hat was made from embroidery floss.


supplies used:
RubberNecker stamp
Chatterbox pattern paper
Cuttlebug Swiss dots
My Minds Eye verses
wire, embroidery floss
