ALTERED CHEESE BOX and other things....

I promised to post a picture of my altered cheese box which I made at Karen's last week. The before picture is on my WOYWW post - I used a Tunworth cheese box which I just happened to have around and thought it could have another life other than being put in the recycle bin.

I used some of the gorgeous backing papers I received from the altered paper swap, again, and an inchy (not one of mine but it had no name on it) - the bird in the center came from that book I'm using. I've also used a page on the inside and stamped it with a Stampin Up stamp.

I'm now using the box to store some of my inchies in. I'm going to enter this into a challenge blog I found today - which actually asks for anything but a card the Cheerful Stamp Pad

The challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art is Faces- I love this theme and have so many stamps with faces on I was spoilt for choice - like the sample on the blog I wanted to use them all but settled instead for one of my faves - guess what yes a Cherry Pie Art stamp - do you think I need to branch out on my make of stamps a bit??? Once again I've used some of that altered paper - I'm going to be stuck when its all gone! The colours in this were a real challenge for me, right outside my comfort zone as I don't usually play with blues or oranges. I'm more an earth colour sort of gal. Do you see that bit of string at the bottom - well I'm being very environmentally conscious as that was the wrapping round my Abel & Cole veggie box this morning - I knew if I kept it it would come in handy for crafting.

Oh and p.s.

Great mix of textures on this ex-cheese box! Love all the bird connections - your inchies will look lovely in there.
