A Little bit Steam "Funk"

The Get Funky and Craft blog is  stuffed full of inspiration for using the fantastic papers, digital images and all the other lovely things produced by Funky Hand.

Every week there are a couple of new things to see there, and once a month a special showcase where the DT all make something using the same collection. This month the lovely, moody
 download  has been chosen as our showcase  collection.

I made this little pillow box
I printed at A5 size on both sides of a sheet of A4 White Bazzill card for the main box, then used the other half of the sheet to print 2 quarter sized designs on the textured side and another A5 sized piece on the back of those smaller sections.  That way I could cut a long enough piece of the text design to go right around the box, and could use the other pieces to decorate. 
I covered a chipboard heart with some of the cogs design paper and matched that up with some inked to match die cut cogs that a friend sent to me a couple of years ago (there were a lot!).
I then just used a leftover scrap from the paper used for the box to make a "ribbon" detail.

If you were wondering why the chipboard heart looks a bit murky it's because there's a fine layer of glitter  on it - an impulse idea that didn't really come off very well.  Although maybe a layer of Glossy Accents would help....

From my one sheet of A4, I still have quite a bit left, so will have to think how to use it up now!

If you head over to the  Get Funky and Craft blog you will see a great range of ideas using this same set of papers - it's always so interesting and inspiring to see the variety of things the team come up with

That's it for this time, thank you for visiting
