Better Late Than Never!

Way back in May I did a workshop with Janet & Michelle at the Stampman, where we started to decorate a wooden box. Fast forward to November, and I thought it was time that I actually finished it :o)
The box was gesso'd then painted in blue and brown acrylic paints. It's also been stenciled through a honeycomb mask with DI's in blue and brown. The dress form and wings are Tim's dies, as are the buttons and thread holder. These have been stamped and embossed in various DI's. The ribbon around the edges is the TH lace die, and this is already up there on my favourites pile!

The sewing machine and scissors are from Tando Creative, and I'm entering this into their November challenge which is Blue & Brown.
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy what's left of the weekend x
