Out of a Hat Challenge 63

Hello Friends and Followers-hope you are all well and having a great crafting week

This week at Out of a Hat Creations the theme is 'Tickets Please'. What a shame that these days almost all the tickets we get are just bits of paper that pop out of a machine and only a bit off a roll at that-bring back the old tickets I say. I might not be saying that when the queue at the various places was a mile long as the desk clerk searched for the right ticket.


Right back to the challenge :-

This is my make and it is a pot of cream that I mixed with different oils that help sleep. I called the cream 'DREAM' and added that to one ticket and the other ticket says 'made by chrissie'. This is 'rustic' looking but I am not trying to compete with big name products--these makes are  gifts for friends

The pot was a glaring pink colour and one that was in a new, mousse hair colourant  I didn't like it when I had used it and rushed to the hairdresser to put it right lol I painted the outside of the pot a nicer shade.

Then I added some texture to the front and the top.

All I did then was give it a coat of varnish and add the lace, tickets and a flower that I rescued from a friend's birthday card as she always throws them away a couple of days after her birthday.

Do go and visit Janet, Sandra and Tracy's blogs and see what they have made for this challenge and join in with us if you have time.

Love Chrissie xx

What a brilliant idea Chrissie, I love your texture paste. I make my own athletes foot cream for the lads (I know too much information lol) but it works far better than the shop bought stuff xx

I know that the oils I used work cause I dot some on my pillow at night. I am hoping that they will work as well when added to the cream I used.

Thank you for the lovely comments everyone

Love Chrissie xx
