Hearts & Flowers

Welcome to Magnolia Licious's Tuesday challenge (Hearts & Flowers). We would love for you to join us and we can't wait to see your fantastic creations!

I chose to create an altered box using one of the new Magnolia Stamps - You are my Valentine Tilda which you can purchase at Diana's store.  The two other Magnolia Stamps I chose are Chocolate and Lace Heart. The dies I used are the Brides Bow and several dies from Oh LA LA Doo Hickey collection. My paper is from Lemon Craft - House of Roses - it is distress and I used Tea Dye ink for the edges of the paper. I added bling, flowers, resin embellishment and trim. The inside edges of the box were painted with Gesso. The gold was added with a sponge and used Prima gold foil spray. Tilda was paper pieced and colored with Copic Markers.
