TOMIC #12 - Recycling

Hi everyone! Our new challenge on TOMIC starts today and this week it's a special challenge as it's Magnolia Ink Magazine's birthday. There's a special prize waiting for the winner of this challenge so pop over to TOMIC to find our more, I hope you can join us :)
Our theme is recycling as Magnolia Ink is produced on recycled paper and I've recycled a gift box that contained bath goodies. The box was first painted and on the lid I glued tissued paper that I stamped with the Magnolia Roses stamp and red Archival ink. over the top of the paper I added some crackle glaze, more paint, stickles, texture paste, angel fibres, metallic paste and pearl pen pearls. I stamped the sweet Magnolia Chinese Tilda onto a tag cut from watercolour paper and coloured her with distress inks before gluing to the lid with some flowers, Magnolia Chandalier crystals, punched butterflies and ribbon.
Enjoy your day :).

Hi Chris!

You have put a lot work and effort into this darling gift box. It has paid off. I love the way you covered the box. I have never done anything like that. It is so effective.
I love the way you colored Tilda. The background is gorgeous. I love your shading. Her umbrella looks awesome. Beautiful work as always.
