MACABRE MONDAYS.....SMEARED INK DT

The challenge this week at MACABRE MONDAYS is to make a gift box.... and i needed to make something a little 'special' for my DT piece with SMEARED INK'S ELEMENTALS stamps... so here it is.... the box is an origami-folded base... much easier than i though... using recycled brown paper from the centre of a roll of gift wrap....and piece of scrap black card wrapped around it. I stamped directly on to my base after it was folded. I cut some brown card to size and stamped the Earth goddess on..... the swirls on the sides are just a part of the water goddess stamp... her hair i think. I made the rose and leaves from the scraps.... a couple of holes and some ribbon to hold it shut... box done.
BUT what goods a gift box with no gift...? So i made a pendant from a domino.... its the same SMEARED INK -ELEMENTALS goddess.... stamped in stazon, with a little colour from makers added very roughly as i wanted a misty feel to it.... sprayed with vanish to seal.
My DAD patiently sat one day and drilled holes in 28 dominos for me... thanks dad!.... so i added a chain directly though the domino.... stuck velvet on the back... done.

Barb at MACABRE MONDAYS has honoured me and OZ with the title of GT MISTRESS'S..... I love being a GRUESOME TWOSOME.... THANK YOU Barb.... i am chuffed to bits.
Oh i nearly forgot... i added tiny gems whilst the vanish was still wet just to look pretty... i must be getting girly!
Thanks for visiting love lynx

  13. Your box is fabulous. I don't think that using little gems makes your style girly. Just more elegant. :-)
