Surprise in a suitcase!

I fell totally and utterly in love with these papier mache suitcases when I was browsing the other day and just had to have them!! They are just adorable!!

I also wanted to try my hand at using some grungepaper,and wanted to have a go at making some flowers. So I decided to just go for it! lol Here's what I used...

Papier Mache suitcases (pack of two) and the Flower Power rubber stamp themplate purchesd from www.theartisticstamper.com/, I also used Elusive Images Patchwork Butterfly stamp. Blonde Moments Metallic acrylic paints in Bronze and Suet Black,Distress inkpad Fired Brick, Distressed stickles Clear Rock Candy and a Black Archival ink pad. Inktenses Watercolour pencils. Some small paper flowers and some silicone glue!

First of all I made the grunge paper flowers following instructions from here http://gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com/2010/06/grunge-it-up-jennie.html
Then while they I was waiting for them to dry I painted the suitcase with the Bronze and Suet Black Acrylic paint! I stamped the Burtterfly onto grungepaper and coloured it using the Inktense Watercolour pencils. I just glued them all to the inside of the suitcase when they were all dry! It's truned out pretty nice for my first attempt and I just love it to bits! I was going to give this as a gift but think I'll keep it for myself! lol...how many times has that happened to you?...lol.

Thanks for stopping by, take care all,
