Granny's box


This is an altered cheese box. It has been altered using paints, mica sprays and distress inks.

I made the flowers one evening when I was watching TV. I made up a whole load of white ones so I could alter them to what ever colour I wanted. I mixed up a bit of distress re-inker in a mini mister and spritzed it on followed by some mica spray to age it.

The dressmaker label is a Crafty individual image. The Claudine Hellmuth paints, the mica sprays and ink pads are all available from HappyDaze as are the charms I have used.

The Pearls and Buttons are vintage and are from my own stash.
