Vintage altered tea box




This box was a winner on Get sketchy sketch challenge- thanks!!
This box made Top 3 at Die cuts r us challenge- thanks!!
This box made Top 3 at Stamp insanity challenge- thanks!!
Today I decided to alter an old wood tea box as a part of my Passover present for my mom (Dad gets the lo with my sister) and both of them will get something from the new Ikea shop that was opened just near us..
So I was in my almoust usual vintage mood and this is a real 19 century (not sure- but seams like it ) box that my mom can use for her jewelry too.
I used some handmade paper that I colored with a pearl paint, some flocked Prima paper, lots of distressing and inking, 2 die cut circles, stamping with Unity stamp and heat embossing this " love out loud " quote and then just added lots of flowers, buttons, lace, ribbon, blings etc to give it this vintage look
And it was done for some web challenges too- also they are mostly springy, but I digged some that are great for this box
Sketch- for Get sketchy
Inspiration ( geometric shapes are circles and the girl wants to be older- like vintage ) for Cinema saturday
Lace and stamp for Caardvarks-
Pastels for Color create
Favorite (mom's) drink - tea- in mind for Creatalicious ( I use ther Rak flowers and leaves here too)
Pink and green for Totally paper crafts
Embossing for Paper garden projects
Not a card for Creative inspirations
Not a card for Character cafe
Flowers for Quarky crafts
Techniques for Fub and funky- all my distressing and inking and lace pleading too
Sparcle for Creative cottage
Blingy for Design dollies
Button- bow- bling for Ooh- la- la
Altered box for Stamp insanity
Buttons for Twisted thuesdays
Circles for Pixie cottage
Recipe- 1 Stamped image, ribbon, 3 buttons, 2 die cuts for Die cut r us
Recycling for Inky impressions
