Perfect Sentiments Challenge #41 - Anything Goes!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today we have a wide open challenge for you over at The Perfect Sentiment.  That's right ANYTHING GOES!  The only requirement is that you have a sentiment on the front of your project.

This week's sponsor is Avocado Arts, so if you use an image from them, you can enter your project twice!  One lucky winner will receive Sunshine and Smiles (below) from Avocado Arts!

Sunshine and Smiles

Be sure to visit the blogs of my fellow Design Team Members for some awesome inspiration and then get out your crafting hat and get inky with us!

I have been in a non-flat project mood lately, so I created this little candle holder and drawer for this week's project.  The drawer could be filled with anything from trinkets to inspirational quote cards - I chose to fill mine with cards of encouragement.

The "glass" panes on the candle holder are made from recycled plastic packaging (the acetate that some cling stamps came on) painted with Matte Medium and then a coat of Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy.  Panels are taped together with Ranger's Foil Tape.

Cardstock:  Bazzill - Black, Buttercream
Decorative Paper:  Graphic 45 - Olde Curiosity Shoppe, An ABC Primer
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs - The Light of Life; Stampendous - Lighthouse Friends
Inks, Stains and Paints:  Versafine - Onyx Black; Claudine Helmuth - Matte Medium; Ranger Distress Crackle Paint - Clear Rock Candy
Prismacolor Pencils:  Cream, Sand, Yellow Ochre, Beige, Light Brown, Sienna Brown, Dark Umber, Cool Gray 50%, Silver, Cloud Blue Light, Violet, Limepeel, Chartreuse, True Green, Dark Green, Jasmine
