I love little treasure boxes. I found a small cardboard box (3"x3"x2") that I decided to deconstruct to create a new, better version. With that thought in mind I gathered my materials:
1 sheet "Music Notes" by Recollections Scrapbook paper
1 sheet textured cardstock
glue stick, pencil, & scissors
Frog Dog Studio was gracious enough to supply design team members with the February "Mixed Media Kit". I choose the VersaMark watermark stamp pad, the Romantic Background stamp(from Sin City Stamps), and the Magenta PanPastel. The VersaMark ink is wonderful to use with embossing powders, so I tried 2 variations: one stamped directly onto the cardstock and the other colored (first) with Magenta Pan Pastel, then stamped. I was curious what would happen if I stamped the ink without any embossing powder and was pleased to see a beautiful, delicate image emerge!
I used a decorative pair of scissors to cut the bottom image out. Placed against the music box the image needed a little pop. A bit of Magenta on a Sofft Art Sponge smudged along the edge was the perfect touch.
Now to make a treat for inside,but that will have to be a project for another day :-) Have a beautiful, creative day!
