Diamonds at Tuesday Taggers

Oh these tuesdays come round so very fast - does that mean I'm getting old!  Old enough to know that diamonds are not what I covet most in life, but it is nice to dream ...........

Here's my offering for this week, totally carded out so thought I'd alter something to get me back in the mood.
I covered this little box with Ferro paint and stamped a moist stamp onto the top to give the texture.  The diamondy bit is some bling from a fabric wholesalers I| use, and is designed to be stitched into clothing so I stuck it in the box then padded behind so it is a diamond pin cushion. Then just stuck on the beads for feet and the trim and I guess it turned out a little indian looking.  Im gonna use the box to keep my pin embellishments in and use the top as a pincushion!

Anyway if your life needs blinging up a little, come join the fun this week at Tuesday Taggers, let's hope you dazzle us with your work as always.
Peaceful days
x Michelle

What a gorgeous box you've created to keep your embellishments in. It'll look beautiful on your workdesk.
I love the fabric pincushion.
Cards are great but it's lovely to have a change and just create something for yourself. Keeps the mojo fresh I find!!
Take care
Hugs Lisax
