I started with a wooden hankie box holder that I bought from That Craft Place. To this I added black card and then layered on card that I had coloured up with distress paints and distress inks.
Once I had coloured the card I used most of the stamps from the set on it to create a background pattern. Then I cut the card to size and added to the box. On some extra card I did some more distress paints and then stamped the Mariposa butterfly and fussy cut it - I also stamped the pieces on the ends and cut and added them. The diecuts are from the Garden Greens set from Tim Holtz.
I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:
A vintage Journey:use-every-stamp-in-set
Sunday Stamper:pinkleart Wood
Hope you have a great Friday - I've got the gym and a class followed by gardening club - we'll be harvesting again this week. Whatever you're doing enjoy it! And thanks for dropping by today. Big Hugs rachel xx
