Raven treasure chest. By Zuzu


I am sharing this treasure chest style altered box this week. I have been readying myself for a steampunk Halloween event (lots of bands, entertainment, stalls and wonderful costumes) in Birmingham on the 27th of October. I have a wee stall there shared with a friend so have been making a LOT of boxes.

This is a nice big trunk shaped one and I have used the fantastic raven stamp "Airmail bird collage stamp" from HERE....
Apart from the stamp and a lot of paint and varnish etc, I also used one of the Ideaology ornate book plates and a set of the foundation feet from HERE...
See you next month
