The challenge is to show the craft item that you have most enjoyed making over the last year. I love decorating these little boxes and this one has to be my favourite of all of them and one of my reasons for this is in the original blurb on the box below.
I have used the new Crafty Individuals stamp plate CI-035 to alter this wooden box. I really got enthusiastic when I saw this image as its a tide clock and I live on the coast and we have the nearly identical clock set in the wall down on the prom and even more spookier only the week before I had picked up a 2nd hand job lot of stuff and in the box was an old tide barometer again with a metal face the same as this so its official I love this image.
I altered the box using paints and inks to create a shabby chic distressed look hopefully to look like it has spent years in an old cabin at sea. Well used and well worn with time and the tide.
