I stamped over the plain green backing paper and just added a script from the stamp set
and coloured with vintage photo distress ink
then added some silk ribbon not really sure of this as its not my usually style.

Altered Box

 Been Busy This Week Made a few Atc's still not sure about them something missing got to go and sort through my stash to find that missing piece, I alway wanted to make myself a box for Jewellery etc, finally found this and and altered it to my taste i love old clocks and anything else that is old i used a lot of TH Game Spinners and i wanted something that looked a bit rusty and old so used Old Brass Metallic Paint.

                                                  Large Altered Box

Started  On This Box Last Night
I painted the box inside and out side using Lumiere Light Metallic Acrylic Paint
The Colour is Old Brass.

The Box Has 2 Removable Trays.

I happened to come across a sheet of old clock rub ons in my craft
shop, Rub ons are not something i use
I Just liked the style of these, I covered the lid With The Rub-ons and added Tim Holtz
Game Spinners in the Centre of Each Watch.

I also added Tim Holtz Foundations Box Feet
And Tim Holtz Watch Face.

I will either use this as a Jewellery box
or to store my craft tools
Just Got To Hide it From My Sister when she visits.
Thanks for Visiting.
