You looking at me?

A little bit of 3D assemblage from me today.... made from the packaging from some wood shapes!
(I think I must have been listing slightly when I took that pic....put your head on one side and it'll look better!)
I painted the box (it is a Prima Icons box) with a wash of white paint, then edged it slightly with black ink.
I stamped some text onto card, then cut it into squares to fit the back of the squares in the box. Lots of trimming needed as the squares aren't actually square!!! I stamped some Stampotique ladies and coloured them with markers, keeping to a red theme!
The heart is also Stampotique, I stamped it onto red painted card, then added the text (Stampotique again) before cutting out. A good coat of Glossy Accents gives the shiny look...
The box is standing on button stacks..
(bit of a blurry pic there, I'm beginning to think I was a little tipsy during this photo session!)
I added another stack to the top..
A nice way of using packaging to create more art!
See you soon,
Trish xxx

This is super cute, loving the use of the Stampotique girls and the buttons for legs are so thoughtful.

Super Cool, Trish, loving the button stacks (even if they are a bit squiffy, lol). Wish I had Stampotique characters, lucky you (May have said this before, soz...) Tfs :))

Very good idea using this box and buttons, looks sooo nice. Looks like comic art, very great. I like it very much.
