Living in a Box

Well actually as it says on the box this is for my Stickles, and I have made it to enter into Hel's Sunday Stamper. I like living on the edge and this entry is close to the deadline! I have had this box for yonks,  and it has been sitting there waiting to be decorated. I painted it black using Claudine's Studio paints, and the middle is Ten Seconds Studio metal with chipboard letters underneath and then I decorated the surface with wheels, and put stickles all over it! Most of the time this piece has been waiting to dry. I stamped in gold Dabber one of The Artistic Stamper calligraphic backgrounds, and where the stamp didn't quite touch the box, I have left it black. It is very hard stamping a box with no way of holding the back of it so it all stamps, especially a box that has bendy sides!



Thank you Hels for the challenge, at least now I have a box for my stickles!

You can do no wrong with that stamp - I'm still using mine weekly and I reckon I bought it off you about 8 years ago! Great box..
