Ballerina Tilda

Hi Everyone!

The weather is lovely here in Vancouver this week. 
The temperature is finally warming up, summer is just around the corner.
One more week, the kids will be out of school.

Today, I have a 3D project to share with you- a mini jewelry box.
I wanted to use some of my "old" stuff in my stash,
Some of these items are actually brand new still, 
they have not been used since I bought them.

The image I used is Ballerina Tilda from the Fairy Tale Collection.
I water colored her with Distress Ink pads.
The glitters on her dress and tiara does not show very well.
If you click on the picture, you might see it better.

The trellis in the background is die cuts using 
Grand Gothic Stained Glass die from Memory Box.
When I bought it last year, I thought I could use it as a trellis.

I cut out 3 pieces, 2 white and 1 pink.
I then trimmed off the center portion of the pink die cut
and glued it between the 2 white pieces.

I frantaged the trellis front and the butterflies.
I added a little crystal bauble to the match box drawer.
Other dies I used are from Magnolia, Memory Box, Spellbinders and SU.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
18mm Lucy white cluny lace, 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace,
white organza rose ribbon, ivory pearl and crystal branch,
WOC white lily flower, ivory/lemon sparkle rose,
10mm pale pink open rose.

Thanks so much for stopping by.


I wish to enter this creation in the following challenges:
