Gift box

Hi folks. A decorated kraft card matchbox using DP Mintay .First step was to decorate the box with TH distress ink and a stencil. Some elements of the paper were fussy cut and given height with foam tape. The flower was die cut , scrunched up and re shaped with tools. I used wax to lightly coat areas of the flower. The leaf sprays were also die cut and I added sisal for interest. The bronze leaf is from my stash of embellishments. The chip board is from Dusty Attic and is one i received as part of a prize. This was also coated with wax. To finish i scrunched up some silver paper and placed inside the box as the base layer.I placed a large pearl on wire and pushed through the front of the drawer as a handle.A pink pearl was also added. Thanks for stopping by xx

Altered Board

Hi folks. Another of these altered food/bread board. Anyone who knows me well ,know I love flowers/gardening. I decided to alter this board to highlight my love for Flowers, using sunset colours.. My favourite flowers are Roses but I love any flower. First I covered with Metallic wax then using a stencil I partially covered it with Gold Opal Wax. The image is from Hunkydory (cut down and distressed) the edges covered with wax. The leaves were die cut and lightly dusted with TH Distress inks. The circles are chipboard which I coloured with various wax colours. The "Love" is also chipboard coloured with wax and glittered . The pearl chain and flowers are from my stash. To complete I added some Ribbon so that I can hang this on the wall. Thanks for stopping by xx
