My spring stamp challenge entry, gift box ornament,



Using a gorgeous stamp I have had for ages and ages and never used hardly at all, as always been worried about stamping, but thanks to challenges on here and especially for this one on http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/, I adore stamping now, need to get more stamps to play with,
This beautiful gift box/hanging decoration I made by stamping 4 images, cutting them out and cutting the centres out, I embossed it in silver powder, then coloured it in various h2o's, all 4 sides are the same colours,
the card I did all this on is a lovely pale pastel green,
This is approx 6" tall and each side is approx 3" wide,
I glued them all together, and fastened the top with gold ribbon, so it can be used as a opener to the box or a hanger to the decoration,
I thought this might be nice to put chocolates or gifts in, or/and use as a hanging decoration for easter as well,
These are my choice of spring colours,
