Crafty Individuals produce the most beautiful paper collections(I have spares at the caravan)and I used papers from book 3 and book 7.
I painted(Paper Artsy Fresco- Sky blue) and stamped the inside with script before I glued on the papers, distress inked(brushed corduroy) around the edges, stamped and embossed the bird cage(CI234) in silver, coloured the bird - part of a present from a friend(PA sky blue) and then distress markers. The flowers - large one made with my new TH tattered movers and shapers die and small ones - Prima were added later.
The two tags - one in a pocket made from the paper so that I can write a message, and the larger one to match the theme - For My Friend stamped with CI052 and the face (CI065) stamped onto a torn of piece of bread bag from M&S
Assembly wasn't as easy as it was when the box was in it's original state, and as you can see in this pic it crumpled a bit, but overall I'm happy with my box.
|Light had failed by the time I took this photo! It is the same colour but look what electric light has done to it!|
