Simon Says Stamp & Show, Show us Your Distress Inks......

Hiya ladies and is Monday sooooo you allready know what that means don't you???? yessssssssssssssss it is another fabulous challenge at

the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog....wohooooo
And offcourse our regular sponsor has a fabulous prize for the winner......

So check it out ladies and gents because I am sure you will have a lot of fun again when you play along with the challenge...this week the challenge is saying,

Show us your Distress Inks......

This week I altered a Tea box, I played with a lot of distress inks, the box was colored with, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood and Vintage Photo.

The top of the box was worked on with the Embossing distress ink and The Tim Holtz embossing powder to create the swirls on top. The flowers on top are from The Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die. I just love this Die....wohoooo absolutely wonderfull to play with.

I also used the distress inks to work on the flowers and on the edges of the flowers I used the Glossy accents from Tim Holtz and a few spacers in the middle of the flowers. The pearls,lace and sentiment are from my own stash.
The papers that I have used for the flowers are from The Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Pack Vintage Shabby and everything is sprayed on with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmermist and Old Lace from Tattered Angels. It is so much fun to play with the gives your project a very nice glitzy effect.

Here you can see the embossed swirls on the top of the TeaBox.....I used the copper color, it gives such a nice "old" touch to the box....
And this is the side of the TeaBox, so you can see that the lace really goes around the box....I just love this lace....too bad it is allmost gone hehehhe.....
So I hope that you like my project, I made it for a friend from my moms, she wanted an original present for her friend to give on her birthday...I hope she likes it....This is it for now ladies and gents, if you wanna have fun on the first day of the week then come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog and join into the really are going to have fun I know it.....and while you are at it, just check out the AMAZING project my AMAZING teamies made for this weeks challenge.....

  4. Hi Terry!! It is me, Terry! I love this box, so much! I have a trim almost like that the one you used to run along the top of a box that was my Dad's! Never thought of embossing on the top, so thank you for that inspiration! I thought about stamps and die cuts, so now there is one more option! Maybe now I can start and finish! This is so fabulous!
