Viva SCACD and Quixotic Paperie

Quixotic Paperie owned by the supertalented and fabulous Elaine and our supersweet and wonderful Susana of SCACD have been partnering on efforts behind the scenes which have lead to that they consider each other International Sister Stores.

They are combining efforts on certain mutual adventures which start with this wonderful Viva Blog Hop! And yes - the hop involves Yummy Candy!! So make sure you stop at  BOTH Store Blogs for SCACD and for Quixotic Paperie. Each Store Blog will offer up one chance to win the set. Make sure that you read the details on each store blog and answer the question. The candy runs between July 23rd until July 31st.

Here's the blog hop order - just in case you get lost :-)

QUIXOTIC PAPERIE STORE BLOG - Kim  - Aud - Judy - Danni - Jacquie - Kim - Dianne - Marti - SCACD STORE BLOG - Rowena - Lori - Kim - Carolyn  - Simonne - Anki (me :-) - Emma - Suzanne - Elaine Hughes.

Well - with that said - I will try to keep my post very short ;-) I decided to alter a box that Isac had purchased a mini-motorbike in. The DPs that I used are from my local craftshop and from a Swedish brand called Maja Design. I chalked with Pine Cone around the edges. 

The stamp is Flower Power - I just love that girl! Coloured her with my copics and cut her out with my nesties (both the small one and the large pic). Added some some lace that I got from my local craftstore. The chipboard that I altered are from the Maya Road collection. Then I used my Viva Decor Pearl Pen as you can see below.
On the image I used my Glitter Liner pen for the leaves, my Viva Decor Gloss Pen for some highlights on her dress and hair and finally the Viva Decor Paper Pen - to create some matching pearls.

I also used Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint and chalked with Pine Cone around the edges.
Here's a pic of the altered box from the side.
And here's the final project. Not sure yet who will receive this and what to fill it with :-)

For those of you that - like me - live in Europe - I do hope that you know that the Viva Decor Pens and this adorabe stamp also is available over at QP - being an International Sister Store to SCACD.

Thank you for reading this far - and now it's time for you to hop (hope you leave a little mark of your visit before you leave) over to Emma's blog.
