Start with one of these.....
The Artistic Stamper Chicken Wire and Pola Dots Background stamps .
While that was drying I set about doing the embellishments. I used the Alterations Caged bird cut from thick white card, which was then alocohol inked in green, terracotta and gold to give it a tarnished look! The flowers are done using off cuts of the afore mentioned scrapbook papers and The Artistic Stamper Flower Power themeplate. I used the Birds and Trees decorative strip for the background trees, a Tim Holzt ticket, and some fancy headed pins along with big brads for the flower centres!
Absolutley pleased as punch with the way this has turned out!! I couldn't have matched it in better with that background paper for the box if I had tried!! lol... Just LOVE it when that happens!! :D
I haven't figured out if I'm going to use the lid or not yet.... Despite the fact that it's filigree it kind of defeats the purpose of showing off what's inside!? I'll make my mind up on that later!
Thanks for dropping by and reading my waffles...
