Pretty in Pink Challenge~

I am posting my design team project for the Scrapbook Stamp Society Pretty in Pink Challenge. My favorite color is pink so how can I not join this challenge. *SMILE*

I decided to alter a cigar box. I have always wanted to alter one so this was my chance to create one.

I used the Marie Let them eat Cupcake digi stamp by Sherri Baldy.

I covered the cigar box with K&CO Valentine Specialty paper. I colored Marie with copic markers (B00, C1, E00, E13, E57, R20, R29, RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14, RV17, RV63, YG13, Y06). I distress the edges of the box with Apple Barrel's magenta acrylic paint and Daler Rowney's FW Pearlescent liquid acrylic in Platinum Pink. The embellishments are Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers, misc. mini paper roses, stickles, rhinestones, Maya mist (doesn't say color on bottle *SIGH*) vintage scallop lace trim, and one of my handmade beaded stick pins with butterfly charm.

Here is the inside of the front cover. I decoupaged some rose cupcake liners for my background, K&CO Valentine's borders, mini paper roses, and one of my handmade stick pins. I added the same acrylic paints to add some distressing to it. I added an image I had in my stash of Marie. It's one of my favorites.


The inside of the box is lined with pink soft felt and edged with a beautiful rose trim. I also lined the box with more vintage lace I had in my stash. I enclosed some yummy goodies in it.


I hope you enjoyed my project. Please be sure to cast your vote at: Scrapbook Stamp Society Pretty in Pink Challenge. Thank you!!!
