Cupboard Love!

 Earlier this week, Hels asked me to name that tune, and come up with a song title for her Sunday Stamper challenge. Now I will be honest here, and say that my memory never serves me well, and I asked for help from the other half, who has an encyclopedia of songs and bands stored in his head!If it is rock n roll, he can tell you , who , where and when!! So he named  the songs and Hels chose one- Shine on You Crazy Diamond, by Pink Floyd, and I have been singing it while creating this piece.
For those of you who have spotted it I used a spare 2 inserts from a Configurations box, and cut one up  to form the cupboard front, and attached it with a diamond shape piece of Idea-ology paper. I used just one quarter of paper to create this, and covered the inside with it. The outside was crazed with Rock candy crackle paint , and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Turquoise Mist on the outside. I dabbed it off to make it dry quicker. I added lots of Tissue tape to the edges, and the inside is a gorgeous old doll's head with a diamond crown studded with diamonds!! of course they real... worth a fortune this box!!! rofl!! A button formed the handle, and beads made the legs.

Actually this is one of the pieces for a workshop I m doing on Sunday at Jendenink's, and if you would like to take part, then there is one place left! Just call the shop to arrange it .
Thank you Hels for the chance to be a songmaker! lol It has been fun !
Happy Creating!
