For August the Colour theme is "Brights "
So for my designer piece I decorated one of my wooden cubes..these are solid wood and make great paper weights.
I started by sealing the wood with a primer and while that was drying I coloured some card with Oxide distress inks, spritzing and drying with a heat tool until I got the colour how I wanted it.
When the card was completely dry I cut 6 pieces to cover each side, top & bottom of my cube.
I stamped the images on each piece..these are new stamps that I was lucky enough to win from Aall&Create, designed by Tracy Evans..so this is their very first outing and I love them.
Once the inks were dry I adhered the card to the cube then sprayed it all over with Seal&Shine which really enhances the oxide ink colours.
To finish I decorated a heart in colours that matched and adhered it to the top of the cube.
Do pop over to check out the challenge..you have the opportunity of winning some fabulous digi paper packs from Lozzy, our boss lady...
