Recycled truffle box

As I mentioned in a previous post I have been taking an online She Art workshop with Christy Tomlinson and have been enjoying it so much I decided to use what I've been learning to alter an old chocolate truffle box - I actually made it as a dt project completely forgetting that we had decided to put the challenges on hold for a few weeks - doh! - never mind, I was needing a new home for my earrings anyway.

I covered the original box with a coat of Gesso, added some book paper then painted it with acrylics. I then stamped, sponged and stencilled before adding my girl. I decorated it with flowers, beads, gold braid, rub ons and a good coating of Mod Podge to seal it all.

Entering this for the following challenges:
Allsorts - Anything but a card
Challenge Up Your Life - No patterned paper
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything but a card
Delightful Challenges - Things with wings 
7 Kids College Fund - Anything but a card
Pollycraft - Recycle
