Yes this is a major achievement for me! I don't really do boxes, they don't travel well and the presents I give are usually too bulky for a handmade box however not this year since falling into the "Addicted to beads" trap coz of Judie!
Took me a while to absorb the destructions, I was going to make a smaller one that Helen made on P4P blog but decided that would be too small for what I wanted it for so finally managed this 5" square one :D Whoop go me lol!
I'm entering this into the following challenges...
The image is Butterfly Swirl by Dewdrop Craftz coloured with Promarkers (fav medium) I love this stamp and wanted to see how she looked in christmas colours so here she is :)
Off the top of my head colours used were:
Face/skin - Ivory, blush, vanilla, oatmeal
Reds - Red, poppy, crimson
Greens - Meadow, grass, emerald, forest
The red parts on the wing and the crystal she is holding I have gone over with a copic spica glitter pen in clear so they're all sparkly, wish promarkers would make a glitter one, I'd be first in the queue!
I went round the image with versamagic aloe vera and towards the edges in brilliance pearlescent ivy also stamping the stars in the same and added an iridescent gem.
The papers used on the box are from bearly mine designer extreme III and I have attached a charm to the ribbon which is a tibetian silver made with love and the rest are beads from my now extensive stash including green and red crackle beads (sparkly!) gold stardust beads (sparkly!) and swarovski crystal AB beads (super sparkly!)
Thanks for looking!
