A little trinket box...

On Wednesday a good friend of mine celebrated her birthday and I wanted to make a trinket box for her. As mentioned on my previous post I focussed on turning wooden blanks into creations for this week.

I entered this into the Papersmooches SPARKS Challenge which is based on the following picture.

The blank:

The result:

I used BoBunny Wall to Wall Textures stamp set (wood panel image) together with Hero Arts Wet Cement to create a look of a small "crate" box. I stamped the sentiment on the outside of the lid from Papersmooches Pretty Phrases using Adirondack Dabber in Lemonade. The flower image in the background is from PS Botanicals 1 using Wet Cement. On the inside of the lid, I stamped the sentiment from PS Party Posse also using Lemonade. I stamped the kitty as well from the same set and coloured her in using Copics (Y00, Y02, Y08, BG13, BG23, BG34). I used Martha Stewarts satin acrylic craft paint in Beach Glass to colour inside the box (note I added gesso before I did this).

To finish off the box I added enamel dots, rhinestone/gem patterns, flower button and most importantly box "legs" which were painted with Lemonade as well.

Let's just say...she loved it!!
