You're My Prince Charming




What a big leap from Winter to a Valentines themed project lol. Well... i had started this already a while ago and never quite finished it. Tomorrows challenge made me just work on it again and finish it up. I have bought this candy box this year for my husband at Target around Valentines. It featured a big frog in the center, which i have covered up with a sheet of Making Memories silver foil and Tilda and Edwin. Some text about the chocolates is hidden behind the flower to the right. To tie the silver and hot pinks of my tin into my work i have painted the pink ribbon with Shimmerz "Bubble Gum" and the flower centers with "Ho-Ho Silver" paint.

I would love to show you the inside of the tin. Mine is intended to give to a paper crafting friend that's why, i have not removed the plastic insert, where the chocolates were. I used those to hold felt flowers, beads and buttons. In the biggest section i have added some "special" flowers which i have spritzed with Shimmerz Babies breath and Licorice.

Stamps: Tilda and Edwin kissing from the "New Years Collection" 2008, Sentiment: "Charming" computer generated
Embellishments: Shimmerz Spritz (Babies Breath and Licorice), Shimmerz paints: bubble gum and Ho Ho Silver, Stampin up (ribbons), Making Memories (buttons, safety pin and foil - Michaels)
Tools: Stampin up (star punch and word window punch)
Copic Sketch: c2, w6, c3, r81, r85, r39, w5, c5, e000, r000, e50, c9, c7, r83, e31, c06, y21, r20, e11, e00, w7, w2
