Window Box Box

I was inspired to make this box out of T!m's window box die when I saw this below that Eileen had created.  

She showed a photo of it on twitter.  Hers was obviously based around a Halloween theme.

I used various dies, the branch tree was kindly cut and sent to me by another twitter buddie, Kirsten. I painted it in mocha mousse fresco paint and added a bit of black dress.

The T!m Carol Singers were cut and sent to me by yet another twitter friend, Lin.  They were cut from black card and I left them as they were as I wanted silhouettes. 

The T!m lamp post was cut by me but the die actually belongs to my mate Maz.  I painted it in elephant fresco and again added some black dress.  I actually have the on the edge fence die and I cut it from silver textured card.

The sills were used on the top, coloured in black and heat embossed with vanilla wow powder, using the PA mini flourish.

The windows were cut from chipboard, painted in little black dress fresco and stamped with the PA brick wall mini in cloud white versa magic ink.

Everything is sat on a beer mat painted black.

I'm sharing this project over at Altered Eclectics for their anything goes theme for October.
