Little Angel Wisdom Box



I used a small wooden box  similar ones are available here. I gave the box a couple of coats of matt paint and stamped Loast Coast Designs ~ Praying Angel on the lid and Lost Coast Designs ~ Words on all four sides. The image was lightly coloured with distress inks and coated with varnish to protect the stamped images.



Another little box I altered using lost coast designs cameo set, I think it looks rather like an old Victorian cigar box! LOL! I added detail using a gold leafing pen and some braid and a tassel chain.


Short & sweet as off to finish some more cards.

Happy Crafting XX

Both are lovely projects and as usual beautifully made. Fab stamping with the angel image. It looks really detailed.

Both turned out great. Love the natural look of the first one and the victorian..omg...stunning. I don't expect cigars inside...my thoughts where fabric tissues with monogram and a vintage cross - chain...(:o) Elly
