Purple box

 Hi guys,

My best friend wanted a box to keep his pencil ends in - a pencil graveyard lol. So he provided the box and I decorated it. He loves purple, so obviously I kept to this colour scheme.

I did a base coat with a purple paint and then sprayed this with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray in , to create a splatter effect. I left this to dry for 48 hours and then stamped the tree images using VersaMark ink. I heat embossed these using a black embossing powder from heat it up.

I would like to enter this box into the following challenges:
TIOT - Emboss it
sweetstampin' - favourite colour combination - I really like the combination of black and purple
craftycalendar - anything goes

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
