New challenge over at ANYTHING BUT A CARD F

Yes thats right a new challenge has started over at ANYTHING BUT A CARD. The theme is OPEN THEME - that means it is anything goes.

I altered an old box base.  On the outside I covered with old serviette to give it the wrinkled look.  I then painted it and used inka gold over the top.  I fixed braid to the top as the hanger bit and also around the rim of box  I lined the inside with black velvet from an old dress I used to be able to fit into lol!

  I had bought an old cheap looking clay mask from a car boot sale. I painted it and then decorated it using broken jewellery, handmade flowers for the eyes and feathers.  

I then stuck the mask to the lining and voila a Hanging box frame.

I must apologise for all the pictures but could not make up my mind on the ones to use for this post.


Why not head on over to ANYTHING BUT A CARD and join in with the OPEN THEME challenge this month.  Happy crafting to you all.

Hugz and love always

Elaine aka Ellapu xxx
