Don't Box Her In

Hello Everyone
Ophelia is possibly the most recognisable of all The Stampsmith stamps, coming in different forms, click the link to see just how many variations there are on this stunning stamp. I selected the large, facing right version to adorn a plain box.
In a former life this box was a  presentation style box for a necklace/pendant, it was ripe for altering.
As well as Ophelia I also used a stamp from the Cartolina Postale set. This is a wonderful set of stamps not only to use to create faux vintage style postcards but to add background details, etc on artwork. Here I used one of the stamps to stamp directly onto the edges of the box and then layering with beautiful lace.
There are  details on how I decorated the box at my blog, Adorn. 
Did you know that the new Stampsmith Challenge is underway? We are asking that for the month of June you create Humorous Birthday artwork to share with us. As always at the end of the month one winner will be randomly selected with the prize of $21 to spend at The Stampsmith store on stamps of your own choice.
Happy Stamping.

Lovely, Lynne! That lace is scrumptious.
