The Kraft Journal Challenge #42 and The Penmaker's Fountain Pen



at The Kraft Journal this week.
The perfect challenge for my little pizza box that I learned to make here. I have been hanging out on You Tube for the last month, finding tons of great crafting ideas. When Sherry posted this one, I just had to try it.


The box is made from Basic
Grey's Oxford "Lacrosse" and the band is my favorite Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and Basic
Grey's Oxford "Sorority". 


I made the flower using Tim 
Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix Die with a sheet of copper and the Lacrosse DP. I inked the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink. For the leaves, I used Tim's Movers & Shapers Mini Branch & Leaf Set, cutting them from the copper. I then dabbed on some Oregano Alcohol Ink to give it some texture and a bit of color. 


The stained grungy tag is one 
from the Designers Assortment. My sentiment is from an old Sweet 'n Sassy set stamped with Vintage Photo DI. The rhinestone is from Recollections.
Hope you''ll join the challenge!


Now, I just have to show you
this fabulous fountain pen the Penmaker created for a dear friend.


The wood is Amboyna Burl.
The works are an "Elegant" component set... Titanium Gold and Rhodium.


Thanks for stopping today... 
Hugs to all!

I love your pizza box! Aren't they fun. What I'm really loving is these metal flowers you've been doing. They are so awesome Linda! I think the penmaker may have outdone himself on this one. What a talent! Guess that's why you make such a great pair huh? ;-)
P.S. Thanks for sharing this at The Kraft Journal too. :-)
