Vintage Shabby Chic BD gift for Vintagepapergrl

Hello everyone!
These are beautiful creations for a wonderful friend of mine, who I mat on YT several years ago. Her name is Stephanie. Wonderful person in and out. we just clicked. Her YT channel is Vintagepapergrl. She likes Vintage/Shabby Chic style and doing amazing job on her projects. Unfortunately lately  family took all her attantion and she is not crafting as much as she would like to.
So go and show her some love, just browsing around her older creations/videos.
Alright, for my YT  BFF I created few vintage looking items:

Lets take a look closer to each one of those...

1. First and always the card. Absolutely LOVE cardmaking and LOVE create those dimensional cards.
 I used recycle chipboard for the base, papers by KSP "Easter Elegance, free digi image of Victorian lady and WOC flowers from my stash. It came out absolutely beautiful.

2. Altered picture cube that I picked up at the thrift shop. I gesso it first, added some crackle substance from Michael's or Hobby Lobby and finished it with off white paint added some sparkling glitter while paint was drying...
 isn't it beautiful? let take a look closer..

well now that you have seen details and embellishments on the top, which were actually from my shop NSK, minus WOC flowers, but I have some other once.. now lets take a look on all 4 sides

Images of Victorian ladies you can find at my the most favorite digital shop KSP and the collection calls "Painted Ladies ATC Set" 1 & 2.
Oh cotton  trim is from NSK. And of course I stuffed some goodies inside for her..
Right, lets move on to the final altered project...
3. Altered Egg Carton. Amazingly but those are such a great gift presentation.. Love working with those.
Again I used off white paint and sprinkled some sparkle while waiting for paint to dry out..

 well here I went to town on decoration: laces , flowers, pearls and Venice appliques (check my store basically). Love how it came out...
And some yummies inside for my sweet BFF

Very much hope you liked it Ladies and Gents! Hope it will give some of you some inspiration!
Have a wonderful time creating!
Hugs, Natasha
