Sweetpea box

This is the box that I made for ABC Design Team which is unused stash this week. The paper is a brown sheet of BoBunny which has been faux stitched in silver pen. Unfortunately it is so dark here today that even under a daylight bulb all of the work is not showing up. I have taken pictures of the boys holding the box (they both wanted to be photographed) to give you an idea of the size of it. The flowers used are wild orchard crafts and have been glitter sprayed. The fern punch is my stash and the images have been coloured in green and pink and brown and skin tone copics and I have distressed the edges of the images with distressed ink tea dye. The box covers a coffee box which I intend to give to my Nan. The flowers I have kept simple and in the same arrangement on the sides as I don't want the sides to be too heavy and have concerntrated the blooms on the top of the box all flowers have been glimmermisted in pearl and then have add sprinkles of diamond dust added. On the two larger sides and on the top I have followed some sketche challenges and the pearls used on these are from the hobby house and the brown ribbon is stash. I promise to try and get some better pictures outside if it is not raining tomorrow.
