Less is sometimes more

I bought this blank ATC box with a friend in mind, from a local craft store. I decided to use Madame Payraud’s 12x12 paper from docrafts. I cut all my pieces and made sure they fit. I painted the inside with fresco acrylic in sky and inky pool touched here and there to add depth. 

I then used distress ink in chipped sapphire around all the edges, and once dry rubbed on some treasure gold in sapphire. 

To fasten, I punched holes in the lid and side, and threaded a wide contrasting blue ribbon. I added enough so that the ribbon can sit under the cards and as you open the lid, raises the cards for easy access.  Now for the photos :)

Thank you for looking, see you soon. take care. Xxxx

  2. I'm still catching up after my Daughter's visit with the grandchildren (your turn this weekend ;D) so working backwards through blog posts, lol!

    This is absolutely gorgeous and I'm sure your friend will love it. I think I'd be loathe to part with it, lol! Those papers are quite stunning and I love the blue shades you have used.
