It's a date

I have a bit of a habit of buying cute boxes and other interesting items that 'one day I'll get around to decorating'.  Well I picked up a couple of these wooden calendars, and today is the day that the first one is being used.  (Well, the cupboard is getting a bit full of items, so I needed to take one out!).

I've actually not done that much though, just stamped an image onto the back panel, coloured it in with my markers, and then inked around the edges with an ink pad.  The wood was quite hard to colour on as the marker ink bled a little, but hopefully it looks ok.  This project seemed perfect to support the Numbers challenge at Top Tip Tuesday which starts today.



Project Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • Simon's Wednesday Challenge - C&S
  • Graph'It Challenge - Use greys
  • Sweet Stampin' - No DPs
Happy crafting
Annette

I love what you've done with this little wooden calendar Annette... it really makes it unique! And I'm just trying to catch up on what I've missed while I've been away for a few days... all your cards are fabulous as you know I'm one of your biggest fans.... but that Purple Onion one has to be my favourite!

Big hugs

Hi Annette, Love this CAS project. Cute image and must have been difficult to colour. Gosh this takes me back! I did a class using this calendar. I replaced the numbers, with stamped and decorated card. The top I turned it into a butterfly box. They are such fun to do. Hugs, Carol S.xx
