Tilda's Town Challenge #88 - Anything Goes

Hi guys!
How are you?
It's been a while since I last posted a project for Tilda's Town but I'm back with a little something..
Noooo... It's not a card..

We have an Anything Goes theme this week and I took the opportunity to make one of those little gift boxes I love so much..

This is Ribbon Dance Tilda, one of the stamps from the beautiful Magnolia Little Circus Moscow Collection 2013..
I make these boxes out of Papermania Textured paper and some Joy!Crafts kraft paper..

The DP's are from Maja Design.. This time from a Limited Edition Collection called Sofiero..
Some parts of the box are decorated with Chunky White Frantage..
I've used some Vintage Seam Binding all around the box.. You can't see it on this pic but you'll get an idea when you get to the end of the post..

I just can't stop using those gorgeous heart shaped doilies..
And this butterfly is one of my favourite metal charms..
It has some half pearls and gesso on..
There's some lace under there too.. 

I've used a Martha Stewart punch to decorate the lid and the stripe of paper in this pic..
The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Circle and I've used a matching Scalloped Circle underneath..
All the paper edges are distressed and sewn..
And there are lots of cheesecloth around..

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I Am Roses and Kort & Godt..
All of them are covered with a small ammount of gesso..
The pin is from the Hobby House pin wheel..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I use both the ink pads and reinkers..
List of colours:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain..
Dress: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Ribbon: Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Flower: Victorian Velvet, Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
Background: Weathered Wood
I've added some Shabby White Frantage around her and some Stickles on the flower and parts of her dress..

Don't miss the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Tilda's Town online Magnolia store..
The winner will be random, chosen by Inklinkz..

  6. Ow Tina, your box is again stunning! Hugs,

  7. ...and you make them so beautiful! The brownish one you made for the November challenge is still in my fresh memory. This one's just as gorgeous, but definitely has more of spring feel to it! Had no idea the butterfly is one of your favourite charms; if you had told me, I'd have restocked it. But there'll be plenty of new charms soon...hopefully you'll find a new favourite!
