How are you?
I have a little something to show you today..
Noooo... It's not a card..
It's one of those little gift boxes I love so much..
This is Ribbon Dance Tilda, one of the stamps from the beautiful Magnolia Little Circus Moscow Collection 2013..
I usually make these boxes out of Papermania Textured paper and some Joy!Crafts kraft paper..
The DP's are from Maja Design.. This time from a Limited Edition Collection called Sofiero..
Some parts of the box are decorated with Chunky White Frantage and some with gesso..
I've used some white Vintage Seam Binding all around the box.. You can't see it on this pic but you'll get an idea when you get to the end of the post..
I just can't stop using those gorgeous heart shaped doilies..
And this butterfly is one of my favourite metal charms..
It has some half pearls and gesso on..
There's some lace under there too..
I've used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the lid and the stripe of paper in this pic..
The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Circle and I've used a matching Scalloped Circle underneath..
All the paper edges are distressed and sewn..
And there are lots of cheesecloth around..
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I Am Roses and Kort & Godt..
All of them are covered with a small ammount of gesso..
The pin is from a Hobby House pin wheel..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and reinkers..
