Gorjuss Nightlight

Time has been rushing by again and I've been kept very busy behind the scenes but the main reason for my lack of blogging lately is that I've been having an absolute nightmare with Blogger. I have to switch browsers from Chrome to upload photos and no one's Followers show - including my own. If anyone has any suggestions please don't hesitate to share them.
Today I've braved my frustrations to show you a little project I made for my recent Docrafts demonstration. 

I have made a nightlight. It started off as an empty cardboard tub. I glued one of the lovely papers from the new Santoro Gorjuss range all round the tub and painted the lid with Artiste black acrylic paint. I then made a circle template and drew round it on opposite sides of the tub and used a craft knife to cut the circles out. 

I used a wonderful Gorjuss Deco Sheet - it's tissue paper - to line the inside of the tub and die cut two scalloped circle frames from green Papermania textured card to fit around the cut out circles.

The image is the new Gorjuss Nightlight stamp. I stamped her twice, coloured both with Copics and loosely cut them out. I added lace around the tub before I fixed the girls to the tub on foam pads. 

I finished the nightlight with buttons, bows and bits from the A4 Ultimate pack. I placed the lid on the bottom of the tub and turned it upside down. The actual light is a battery operated LED light that fits perfectly underneath.
I hope I've inspired you to have a go at creating your own nightlight. All my other Docrafts demo samples can be seen in my gallery by clicking on the Docrafts tab on my sidebar.

 I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
