Oriental Box

Again, another pen pot I picked up last weekend from the MDF Man.  This one is a simple pot as it doesn't have the fancy base.

Again I turned it upside down so I had a top to the box, painted it in a few coats of snowflake fresco paint as I wanted a bright white.

Then I stamped various oriental images off the LP stamp Plates, this is from LP023. Stamped in black archival and hi-lighted in red posca pen and finished off with a bit of ruby treasure gold.

Image LP022, black archival, red posca pen and ruby treasure gold.

This image is from my new stamp plate LP025, which was my PA prize from last weeks blog challenge.  Stamped in black archival, red posca pen and ruby treasure gold.

And finally, Image LP023, black archival, red posca pen and ruby treasure gold.

A view from the side with ruby treasure gold spread down the corner but unfortunately you can't see it too well!!

Same again, two different sides but the treasure gold is more noticeable here.

And I used my second set of feet for the bottom of the box.

And finally the top.  Painted in blood orang fresco paint and the edges stamped in the oriental script from the ink and the dog plate, Asian #3.  All other images are from the LP plates stamped on white card, cut into a square and edged in black marker pen.

I have now had confirmation that The Three Muses challenge blog is for any type of artwork, so I'm entering again.

Also Altered Eclectics have a continuous anything goes theme.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
