Stamped her onto the top note die from Stampin up,fixed with 3d foam pads.
The ribbons are from an RAK and just love em!,the bow is Papermania .Buttons are from my stash.I have distressed the edges of the d/Papers with tim Holtz distressing tool,and also used Friskas patterened ruler to rip the backing papers and then used Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist added water and brushed the distressed edges with it.For a different look although doesnt show up so well in photo.Flowers Prima and leaves from Wild Orchard Crafts.

Twilight.............Something Special Trinket Box

Twilight Tinket Box
Happy Friday hope your all looking forward to the weekend ,mind bit cooler than last week when we where in Greenwich at the market in t-shirts no coats was so hot and warm.
I have something special to showcase this afternoon i know i promised it the other day but just havent had the time.
This is a Twilight Trinket Box created and designed by my 13yr old daughter Sophie.Who i have to say is mad twilight fan ,and in loveeeeeeeee with R Patz.Me i just dont know what all the fuss is about...!!!lol maybe showing me age....
Anyways she has created this trinket box to enclose her trickets of the filmms and also her jewelry.
She saned down the box then used a mixture of Tim Holtz Adironak inks Coffee,Latte,Silver metalic and stonwashed inks.Covered by dabbin the box with Tim holtz tool to get the desired effect ashe wanted.She then varnished the box before adding photo of twilight fixing into a frame.She then found my crackle paint and then no stopping her .Finally she added the ribbon and the flower to match .
I think she has made better job than i would have done ,she doesnt know im uploading this as she cant get into her craft blog so im gonna make her another .Until then ive added here.
Above top view of the box lid and frame piccy.
you maybe able to see crackle paint although looking
at it bit hard to see.
Blow i have just shown the lid open as has taken the piccy's too.

Back view of box showing off the ribbon and flower embellishment
