Treasure box for Sasha



The Obscure range of papers and chipboard has a very masculine feeling about it, so my immediate thought was to create a treasure box for a boy to keep little bits and bobs. I had an old wooden Sachertorte box from Vienna for ages, and finally it was a time to do something with it. I have painted it with a powder blue acrylic inside and outside, and after it was dry, I made a collage of Obscure paper (6x6 size pad) and Undressed chipboard, which has been painted with powder blue, gold and buff tintanium acrylics. I have also attached two pieces of ribbon to the top with the double-sided tape (one ribbon comes from Obscure collection, another - Urban couture). The same methods were used to decorate the sides of the box. I also used Technique Tuesday/Pieces of Puzzle stamps to stamp several words on the sides...
