For the Mummy who has Everything!

October 15th 2011


I've made a "set" of creations for today's post using an amazing new design from Chris at CS Designs.
As you can see it's an "advertisement" for "Pyramid Dust & Aged Wrappings" - isn't it fantastic! Chris has an amazing new range of designs espceially for Hallloween and as you can see I've "coloured" mine in an "alternate" colour theme for Halloween - because I LOVE pink!!


I've printed the advertisement in full on some patterned paper and coloured parts of it in "pink" and "gold". And I've made a little pink painted papier mache box which has aged wrappings around it and holds "pyramid dust" which I have sprinkled around everything as well and I cut the "mummy" circle from the advert, coloured it with Copics and attached it to the lid of the round box!! The aged wrappings are made from jagged strips of tea stained muslin. I also tea stained the tassel too to make everything look "aged"!! And I've added some gold Smooch to the images to add some "richness".


I think this would make a great "Trick or Treat" gift for a "MUM" for taking the kids out at Halloween LOL!!!

And I am entering this paper mache creation at the new challenge at Card and Scrap which has a new challenge theme of "not four-sided"!! And I'm also entering this at the new challenge at Desert Islands Crafters Blog - I've used 3 things from their itinerary - Haloween, Favourite Colour (PINK) & Not Square!! Tuesday Throwdown also has a "Think Pink" colour challenge so my "mummy" has been entered over there as well!!


Have a wonderful Pink Saturday everyone!

Sharon I LOVE it!!! Totally fabulous!! Halloween is so fun!!
Because of the move, and after 9 months we are still not finished renovating or unpacking, I didn''t decorate for Halloween this year, and that makes me so sad! But I get to see everyone's gorgeous decorating!! and I do have a few decorations, just not my "norm".
HPS!!

Hello,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Daniella Hayes'. You have so many creative ideas with your cards. I used to love to work with paper when I was a little girl, especially around Halloween. I just love your 'Pyramids of Egypt' design. Me and my daughters started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is so whimsical, pretty, and fun. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

Hi Sharon; Thanks so much for visiting my blog at www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com. Isn't it great to visit from Louisiana (near the gulf of Mexico) all the way to Au. Love your design concept and I've put your challenge button on my sidebar; hope to enter soon if I can't get to it this round; I'll try the next.
