Emerald City Crafts Challenge DT Project

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

So excited today as it is the first challenge over at Emerald City Crafts Challenge Blog!

It is a monthly challenge blog and is always Anything Goes.
It is just for fun but the winner and top 3 will get a badge for their blogs.

You can create any project from mixed media to cards as long as it is a new project!
Looking forward to seeing my crafty friends enter this challenge.

Here is my project for the challenge I have used the Nostalgia digital papers and ephemera from my Etsy store.

This is the lid of the box I have painted with IndigoBlu tan acrylic paint, added the paper and ephemera, these are actual photographs of my own family. I then dry brushed IndigoBlu Pheasant Bronze Metallic paint around the edges. To finish off added the metal embellishments and a tag with the word family adhered to it.

The inside of the box has been stippled with Imagination Crafts Structure paste, painted, dry brushed and a felt lining in the bottom.

As you can see the outside of the box has been given the same treatment as the inside.
I have added paper to the inside of the lid.

Here is a side view of the box with the lid on!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
