Two more boxes for my lavender sachets which I am giving to fellow chemo-ites.
These boxes are for the pale blue sachets with overlaid lace. I took one of my hubby’s paintings for the template for the first box.
I didn’t want so much of the painting to show this time so I tried to cover it with a mixture of blue and white pan pastels, with limited success.
Working on the outside of the boxes, I applied blue pan pastel through a doily as a stencil, and sprayed fixative on it when it was complete.
I then distressed the edge with Stormy Sky distress ink.
Working again on the inside, this time with Stormy Sky distress ink.
I used an ink pen to outline the outside of the box, and then applied silver embossing powder.
On the inside of the first box, I rubbed my Versamark pad randomly over the paper and embossed it with silver, after which I added a few random spots of turquoise Stickles glitter glue.

On the second box, I sprayed over what I had done on the inside, using Dylusions spray ink in London Blue.
Over this, I drew random swirls with the glue pen and embossed with silver embossing powder, working on each flap in turn.
The swirl embossing completed.

I think these blue and white lacy boxes are quite pretty. I had a bit of a job obliterating the watercolour painting which I couldn’t leave visible this time because it didn’t really fit with the design.
