Mermaid gift box - Maigan Lynn - Tera
Can you tell that I love making gift boxes?? My Mom saved 4 boxes that she had with this cute little drawer in them and this is #3 of 4 decorated now. This time I used an image from Maigan Lynn called 'Something in the way' - it is available as a digital image as well as a rubber stamp.
I colored her with prismacolor pencils and cut her out with a Spellbinders die. I edged the main panel with gold metallic pen and then added a frame of small seed beads with crystal lacquer and the seashells are stickers.
I colored the armbands with the gold metallic pen too and added glitter to those and her eyes and some of the seashells.
The box is about 5 by 8 inches and I covered it with pretty cardstock. The drawer pull is a piece of twine threaded through a pretty matching button.
All for today - Take Care
Craftaholic and aspiring artist - I love rubberstamping(coloring with my pencils or copics) altered art, zentangle, locker hook, and my newest venture is encautic wax painting. I am wife to DH (Tom), Mom to DD and DS (Paula and Jack both in college), pet mama to 2 very spoiled pups and 2 rotten kitties, and I work full time as a Critical Care Nurse (for the last 30+ years).
