Ink Box






My first attempt at altering anything is this box for the challenges at Awfully Big Art Adventure and Lots To Do

I bought the box at Paperchase with very little idea as to what I was going to do with it but having realised that it was the perfect size for my Tim Holtz Alcohol inks -- what better to use to decorate it than the inks themselves; and then, of course, I had to get a picture or two of the man himself in there somewhere!

So that's it really -- alcohol inks, a few gems and peel-offs and a little charm all from my stash are what makes it what it is.

Someone asked the size of the box -- it is about the size of a shoe box.

  3. Looks great to me Ali. Do the inks not fall over though in the box? I have mine in a box and that happens to me. Love Cynthia x

  4. Love it! Is it shoe box sized or smaller? I am trying to pluck up the courage to alter something myself. You have inspired me!.
