Challenge 49 at Artful Times

Hello and a Happy all be it very wet Valentines Day to one and all


At Artful Times we are challenge you so make or decorate a box, so a good excuse to eat those choky's if you were lucky enough to receive some.


My little box came from the charity shop  and has gone back to the shop for there Valentines window display.



First I painted it pink, then stamped with a script in grey which shows nicely through the transparency, for the sides I've added stickles to some recycled metal butterflies also from the charity shop and added some die cuts which have been embossed with a white glitter powder

Neet and Chrissie and I look forward to seeing what you do with your boxes

An other pretty box, I love the idea that it has gone back to the charity shop that it came from.
I adore the die cut work on the outside. Not sure if you intended it but the white work looks like you have cut lace to add to the overall vintage look. Really pretty.
