Thove's Box Revisited - Abstract Impressions Photopolymer Bundle

I thought it would be a nice to revisit one of the Bundles from the Annual Catalogue and in doing so, I also decided to revisit one of my previous video tutorials.   Thove's Box which is a reinforced box and, therefore, nice and sturdy and perfect for small gifts such as jewellery, has been a popular video of mine.

I decided to use the basic box, stamping this time with the really pretty Abstract Impressions photopolymer stamp set.   I chose a colour which I don't tend to use very often - Petal Pink.

The flower image I selected is a two step stamp.  I went with the second generation stamping technique for this, loading my base stamp with ink, stamping onto a scrap of card once, before stamping again directly onto my box lid template.  This gives a very muted, lighter shade of Petal Pink.  Then I came in with the second stamp, this time loaded with Calypso Coral ink and stamped directly over each of the base flowers.   I did the same using Pear Pizzazz for the leafy motifs. 

The gorgeous butterfly topper is from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies which form part of this Bundle.  I die cut my butterfly in Petal Pink and added it to the lid.  I wanted to embellish it further, so I added a bow using Silver and Petal Pink Bakers Twine.

You will note from the photo that I lined the base of my box with some Pear Pizzazz card stock to tone with the pattern stamped on the lid.

I have to say that I love how pretty it looks.

This is my original video for Thove's box, if you fancy having a little go:-

Thanks for visiting and happy crafting !
