Lozzer’s Sea Shell Box

Every year when my grandchildren come to visit for their summer holidays it is straight to the beach, I am convinced in a previous life they were all water babies. What is it that all children love to do while at the beach … uh huh collect sea shells so I have made this box for Lauren (Lozzer) to keep all her little treasures in. Found lots of little sea shells in one of the drawers in their bedroom so pinched a few to put on the lid of the box.

Fashionable Stamping has a beautiful theme this fortnight called Nautical so this box came in handy as my DT creation.

When Paula first suggested this challenge I only had a lighthouse stamp which Fliss used on her beautiful card but I managed to buy these pretty little Inkadinkado Stamps which are so cute. The little postcard image of the boy & girl has been stamped over with Versamark and clear embossing powder. Under the black flower is a flourish die, cut from cardboard then painted with acrylic, triple embossed then added mica powder, the shine is incredible, also did the same to the little star and the button in the middle of the bottle top.
Entering for: Craft Us Crazy – Anything But A Card/Altered Item … I think my bottle top counts as an altered item lol.
