Good Morning! It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge and this challenge we were ask to alter something we had in our stash. My stash is HUGE in this catagory. I love to alter, so when I see neat things to alter I grab them. Of course I always plan on getting it altered asap, teehee. HUGE STASH. Hmmmm maybe I should offer some up for blog candy.
I went with red/ black again. Sorry if you are sick of it, but I wanted this little box to match my craft room. Aren't those roses on top gorgeous! Well they are from Layers of Color. I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for Layers of Color this month. They sell the most wonderful stamps and stencils. You can check them out HERE. This particular set is called Vintage Roses.
I started by removing the hinges on the back and lock on the front. When I'm shopping for alterable items, I always think about how easy it will be to disassemble and alter. Then I painted the base black around all the edges. I use old music paper around the base. I had this really cool 3-D frame made by Making Memories that I thought would look good around the glass window. It was part of their "Sabrina" Collection.
Then I stamped and colored my image from the Vintage Roses set.
