Altered Box - A little bit blue


I recently got told about the new Elizabeth Bennet stamp by IndigoBlu by my on-line friend Lucy. I checked out the shop and decided this was one stamp I had to own. As Lucy had recently got it too, we decided to do a linked post about it, so you could have two makes with this stamp to look at, a bit like a Bog-off but better.
You can see Lucy's make with the stamp on her BLOG, if you scroll down her page a bit there, is also a rather lovely heart that she did using the same stamp. She  also pointed me in the direction of the IndigoBlu challenge.


I have used it on the lid of my box. I have also used bubble background and the butterfly from Wild Meadow. I stamped the butterfly again inside the lid so the box looks pretty on the inside to.

I have made this particularly to enter into the IndigoBlu Challenge and the theme is BLUE.

Thanks for visiting, Carol x

Your box is so beautiful, this is one of my favourite Indigoblu stamps. Love your use of tiny beads to give texture to the lid xx Annie

Oh, gorgeous! The bubbly background is heavenly, as is that dreamy colour combo. Elizabeth Bennett is definitely the flavour du jour at the moment it seems... will have to get my hands on her at some point!!

I love your box, Carol - it must be a big one to fit the whole image on! It goes so well with that gorgeous butterfly to echo the little butterfly in the image. Thank you for linking with me,
