MDUC Challenge #160 - Masking

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hope your all having a super weekend !! I have had just the busiest week ever and I am so looking forward to tomorrow to put my feet up !! It's also time for a new challenge at 
So thrilled to be here as a guest designer ! This is just a great challenge to try out masking using 2 images or more !! I have only tried it a few times !! and it really is worth the results !! So why not give it a go there is lots of super talented inspiration over on the MDUC blog !!

I have picked Magnolia Old Swedish Chair & Tilda makes a blueberry blanket from the turning leaves collections ! I have masked her onto the chair ! There is a super tutorial here for masking with these stamps ! and I have tried the no lines technique for the first time with distress inks ! Took me  a couple of attempts lol 

I have made a sewing box from a template that was on my wishlist to do that I found here  !!

I have used different papers from Pion &. Riddersholm Designs !! I have used Magnolia dies and Magnolia flowers ! First time I have tried flowers from Magnolia they are so pretty ! They are from Live & Love Crafts !!.  Love that shop !!!

Here is a shot of the side where the panels lift down to keep all those sewing bits & bobs in !! I have stitched all the panels and added tea rose trim !!

Here is the other side where I have made a wee pocket and attached a sewing machine charm.

Here is the last shot lol a view from the top when the sides open ! I finished it off with a Magnolia ticket die which I used the Magnolia limited edition stamp .

I hope you like my sewing box and hope you will join us in the MDUC Challenge !!
