Katzelkraft Decorated Box - SSSS






Hi everyone! It's my day on the Katzelkraft blog today and I've decorated a box to hold brads, other embellishments etc. As I've added some faux stitching to the fabric leaves I can also enter the Simon Says Stamp Challenge with the theme of 'stitching faux or otherwise'. I have an altered box to show today which I've made to contain brads and embellishments etc. The stamps Typograph 06 and the butterfly from Papillons 04 were stamped on tissue paper and then applied to the box. Lots of acrylic paint, crackle paint, shimmer mist, and distress embossing powder was added over the tissue paper. I die cut some Tim Holtz swirls from card and the tattered florals flowers from fabric which were coloured with distress stains and added to the top together with gems, pearls, stickles and hardware.

Katzelkraft stamps are available exclusively in the UK at The Craft Barn and from Katzelkraft in France.

Have a nice evening.

Hi Chris! This is just beautiful! I LOVE LOVE the box and all the compartments! I love even more how you finished out the box...with the faux stitching of the leaves, the beautiful techniques you used to colorize the papers on the box iwth all the acrylic paints, crackle paints, shimmer mists, etc. And the floral embellishments and butterflies...perfect accent pieces. LOVE THIS! Thanks for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
