Gingersnap Creations Challenge - Romance Week 2 - Lace

This is my entry for Week 2 of the Gingersnap Creations Romance Challenge, in conjunction with the Artistic Stamper Design Team. Again, I have used the new Twenties' lady stamps, this time one of the hats. The sub-theme this week was lace, so I inked the little oval box with copper ink and then covered some self adhesive paper lace with copper leaf, and adhered it to the edges of the lid and base of the box. I stamped two hat images onto glossy card and inked over the top, then stuck an oval Tim Holtz fragment to one image with Glossy Accents, and stuck it to the top of the box. It fitted almost exactly! Then I cut around the other image, added some French book page behind it, and stuck it to the back of a Tim Holtz oval Fragment Charm again using Glossy Accents, and added a mobile 'phone charm loop. The charm can then be popped into the little box and given as a Valentine Gift, perhaps to a dear friend. Most of the items I have used, apart from the little boxes which are from Hobbycraft, can be obtained from the Artistic Stamper who are sponsoring the Gingersnap Challenge for the whole of February.
