Crafty Cardmakers - Altered Food Container xxx

Morning all

Brrrr, its cold today! Raining, dull and cold hmmmm sounds like summer has been and gone!! Typical Scottish weather! Hope where you are is better than here!!

Today I have something a little different for you all, something I've been trying and failing to do for a long time! So I need all your opinions on my wee creation!

This time over on Crafty Cardmakers we want to see you do something that lil bit different


fun or what hee!

I was totally stumped as to what to do and sat staring at this for a good few hours

After a while tho, it started to look like something(whether that was to much staring or me just going mad)

So after a few attempts and some BAKING later, here is what I came up with

Yeah,I tired my hand at making a wee fimo character with a jam jar toadstool lol

What do you think?? Is it ok??

I painted the inside of the jar white, made the toadstool top with fimo formed on the lid the made the wee character following a books instructions for sugar paste characters(thanks mum, it was amazing wee gift)! Then added some lil flowers, glitter and all done hee!

I would like to enter it into the following challenges
Moving along with the Times - Anything but a card
Craft-room Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

Hope you will give our wee Crafty Cardmakers challenge a go this time and get creative with some altered food tubs! Check out the Dt's amazing altered art for some fab inspiration!

Thanks for popping by
