Box Of Hearts

My DT piece for 100 Proof Press this week uses the Heart Locket Chain stamp to decorate a box.
I was inspired by the colours over at The Play Date Cafe this week where the challenge is to use a SPLASH of red.
What a fabulous inspiration picture.
I decorated my box with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and stamped the Heart Locket Chain onto tissue paper and added to my box.
The red heart I received in some packaging from an order I received this morning, a little recycling, which I love to do in my creations wherever possible (thank you AFTH).
The top of the box has a Curio Knob added to the top. I will use this box to house some jewellery for a birthday present.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

It is amazing how realistic that stamp is, you'd actually believe that you had strung a necklace around the box.
Gorgeous.

It's a lovely box, Tracy and you've used that stamp really well. I love it, but not sure if or when I'd use it, but this is a great idea. Love the Fresco effect.
