Purple Haze Challenge - Anything goes (optional use leftovers)

Well it's everyones favourite theme this week at Though the Purple Haze, Anything Goes. Love these weeks on the challenge as we get a good amount of entries and some wonderfully different ideas. To take part, click the link below and you could win some Stamping Chef images.

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

I was given a sexy little image to work with and as I'm still trying to work outside the box (no pun intended!), I decided this week to do a box.

The box itself is made with Kraft card, using the Crafters Companion Sweet Treat boards and covered with Hunkydory card. I'll be completely honest, I have no idea which kit the card is from, it's been in the pile for quite a while! Lace ribbon has been glued around the top and bottom edge of the box and this has been complimented by the bow and the frill I've put around the oval mount. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pencils, blended using their Blending Solution and carefully cut around it and glued it half on the mount and the rest of the image, to the box itself. To finish off, I've added a few leftovers from my crafty stash of a few paper flowers, a feather and 3 pins.
