TREASURE BOX

Just loving my Watercolour pencils (Supra color soft) - so had to colour another stamp using them.


The stamp I've used for this project is one by Elaine Cox called BESS which is available as a single stamp or part of a plate of four Here.
I had planned to make a box to accommodate telephone box and message pad but before I had finished I was already looking to use for some makeup bits and pieces.

Techniques:

Medium:  Watercolouring pencils, Sakura Star dust and Silver glitter pens, Distressing Ink pads Vintage Photo and Antique Linen
Papers:   Craftwork cards, Index sheet off stamps, Cream cardstock, Watercolouring card


Dies used:  Spellbinders square frames, Creatables Rectangles - Lacey and serrated (used half a fancy rectangle too but hard to see on photo)
Embellishments:  Various flowers, Pendant Oval, Seam binding ribbon, Pearls, gems
