LTD - Lock and Key
Well Hilda has come up trumps again asking us this week to turn our imagination to locks and keys, her own key board is fabulous. This litte cutton bud box has been sitting on my work area waiting for me to do something with it. A little treasure chest seemed a good idea.
Grunge paper inked and inked and inked with Spiced Marmalade, frayed burlap and Nick Bantock's Sapmoss Green. As Lucy mentioned recently when worked grunge paper feels more and more like leather and that was the look and feel i has going for. All the stamps on the box are from Tanda in black to give the impression of tooled leather. A little visa Ferro on the lip of the box and lid to hide the clear plastic and add age. The padlock stamped onto metal is also from Tanda. the Key is from the Stamp bug. The catch is plated wire. All because somebody suggested Locks and Keys as a theme for Lots to do this week!
