Altered Box {Scrapy Land Challenge #13}



Can you believe it's already March!?  Since it's the first Wednesday of the month, that means it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge!  The theme for Challenge #13 is Anything Goes, Plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  You can see the list of all the brands of dies here.

For my project today, I altered a plain white box using various dies and patterned paper.  All I need to do now is fill it with some goodies.


The dies I used to complete my box are:
Sue Wilson Designs: Striplet - Bevelled Glass
Die-Versions: Lacey Dots 
Die-Versions: Leafy Swirl

I used Pan Pastels to color the centers of each of the petals and I added Canary flock (from Sparkle N Sprinkle) to the stamens of the large Lilies and Flower Soft (Bright Pink) to the stamens of the mini lilies.  Black cardstock was used to die cut the Beveled Glass die twice and the patterned paper behind the die cut is digital paper from The Digital Press  (Thanks Faith A. for sending me info about that website :-).)  The Lacey Dots die was cut from white cardstock and adhered to all four sides of the box top.  The Leafy Swirl was also die cut twice to layer on top each of the Beveled Glass die cuts.  Mini Lilies were added to the leafy swirls using glue dots.

Now it's your turn to create a project and upload it to the Scrapy Land Challenge.  Be sure your project includes any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  You will have until March 15 to enter.  Be sure to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your viewing pleasure too.
