The box was originally a chocolate box. I just recyled it by Covering it with DP ,coloured the stamps with copics,added sum lace , strings , flowers , twigs and finally I just dabbed in sum distresss inks.I made this for a friend who is returning to her home country after a long stint in dubai.She is a crafter too and she loves to create things frm scrap .she is very special to me and also to everyone who knows her !I cldnt post closeups bcos of slow connectivity ! I wld do so in the coming days .
Happy crafting !
Materials Used :
inkadinkado fairy stamp
copics for colouring
martha stewart butterfly punch
timholtz distress inks
sentiment frm hero arts
laces,strings and flowers frm my stash
