Sweet Stamps Challenge#119: Flowers

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our last May Sweet Stamps challenge:
I decided to make an altered wooden book shaped box as my project for this challenge.

Sure I have stamped flowers on this box, but it's totally flat as I want to use it and those bulky  lids are problematic for use.
So I covered the bare wood with Black gesso ( you don't want to see my fingers after this procedure... LOL) and let it dry for a few hours.
In the meantime I stamped Vertical  ROSES stamp over Kraft cardstock with French Roast Shades ink spot and inked the edges of this piece.

Then I stamped the same stamp again over white cardstock and painted just 3 roses over the second piece. I decided to use Faber Castell Pit Artist pens  in Reds, Greens  and Yellows  and I am really pleased with a result (no blending tools needed , just cover the darker color with lighter and then with even lighter one for the great look as this is India permanent ink  and can be added one layer over another).

The whole box was covered with a piece of Glitz paper layers with Rose over it and a few Kaisercraft die cuts. I glued the stamped piece and added FOR YOU  title made with foam letters.
Now it's your turn: play with our Flowers challenge and you can win great prize!
 I enter this project to Moxie Fab gift challenge

Love your altered box- and that is one that is easily usable! The colors on the Roses- beautiful- love the image stamped under it in brown and the great details like the curled corner and the gems~

What an awesome project, I love the distressed/vintage look of the box and the double stamping of the Roses to give them a 3D look. Gorgeous.

What a wonderful balance with the flowers and postal markings and I like those curled edges.
