My brief was it has to have Teal on it, the box has too be pretty and it has to have her name on it
Here is the finished box - be warned there are a few pictures!
I wanted a touch of a vintage look to it and that's something I don't do too well
Once the box was painted I added a length of pale grey braid to the front edge, a small rose was adhered to each end to complete
Close up of the flowers
The stamp is one of my personal favourites from a set by Rhonna Farrer, I have added a swirl of lace topped off with the layered flowers, I used both crochet and paper flowers with the small roses in the centre, more Roses and flat backed pearls highlight the stamping
Both colours of paint I have used are from Laura Ashley, Ivory and Pale Teal, the large paper flowers were cream but to make them match the box I painted them in Teal, they turned out great and no problems painting them in emulsion paint either. The ribbon around the box was a perfect match so once I had added the glued that one I finished it with another layered flower and a tassle.
I used my Cricut to cut the name using the Winter Woodland cartridge, I love that one the font is so pretty, I cut it from SU card but I don't know the colour, sorry! and finished it with more pearls.
That's it finished and Donna loved it so what do you think?
