The challenge this week is METALLIC MISH-MASH....... here is my creation..... using scrap!
You know the thick brown cardboard that comes on the back of paper pads or as stiffener when you buy vellum or whatever.... i used it to make a gift box.... and the cogs and latch fastenings.
I used T!m Holtz dies for the cogs and latches.... triple embossed them and stamped into them with SMEARED INK TEENS BACKGROUND STAMP.
The box has had 2 coats of black acrylic paint....inside and out.... and then i rubbed the edges with metallic cream.
The card is very stiff to work with and needs strong glue to hold it together but it makes into a really ridgid gift box.

We have 3 entries this week... all very diverse ....please go over and my title for this post... then click challenge in the menu on the right and then click vote.... you'll see the 3 entries.... vote for your favourite in the comments box.... i'd like your vote but so would the other entrants .... vote for your favourite.
Thanks for visiting me today.... have a great friday.
love lynx
