Out of a Hat Creations Challenge 2

This is the second Challenge from "Out of a Hat Creations" Do check out the challenge and we would love you to join in. The challenge picks a theme from a hat every week which is great fun you never know what might come along next. This time it is to decorate a box always a fun thing to do and the world is your oyster in terms of decoration. I have painted a box in Crafty Notions "Peacock" paint what a beautiful colour this has been rubbed back in places to reveal a blue which was the undercoat. It has also been rubbed with metallic silver. I then stamped it with a swirl in white. Heat embossed the cage with WOW white and painted the bird in the peacock and the wing white. With the addition of some bling, song paper, lace etc it was done. I love decorating boxes as there is so much you can do with them. Thanks for stopping by my blog and the lovely comments. Hugs Sandra XXX
