the other side of the box...
The flowers were all done by coloring with pencils on black cardstock using white embossing powder for the image. I was playing around the other day with my pencils and decided to try coloring on black using white pencil as a base. I love the way this came out with this bright teal color, so striking with the white!
The gift box is made by using the Gift Ensemble Die, cutting 4 pieces and gluing the sides together. (You can see more about this in the video and the HC Blog.) I decorated the sides of the box coloring on black as I did with the flowers.
