Blog Candy “Just Because”

Hello, thank you for your visit on my blog. Today i would like to show you a little altered “wooden” box which i was able to quickly alter. It did not take much time or effort to get this ready.

All i have done is first sponge the doily and my flowers with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink and spritzed everything with Tattered Angles Pearl shimmer and set aside to let dry. In the meantime i colored Tilda and the sugar sack in and cut out. Than i added some ribbons around the box to make the rim look nice and added to those some Robins Nest with glue dots (sorry i just noticed i do not have a photo to show you)

Once my doily was dried i glued it down onto my box, so most of the text underneath would be covered and added all my images and embellishments to the top.

Just_Because
Now for the best part.. you can win this box including all the goodies inside AND the Tilda with arrow stamp, which i have purchased especially to prepare my personal candy for one of you. I just got my order yesterday in the mail and that’s why this new is not pictured.


This candy is open for everyone. Please add your entry with Mr. Linky to this posting, please not more than once daily. I will draw a winner on April 26 and will announce the person on my blog on Tuesday 27. If you have a blog and you enter for my candy, please will you add my candy into your blog roll? Thank you i appreciate your time.
