Dream Box

I'm not overly sure what a 'dream box' is, now a 'dream boat' I could probably figure out but that's not the same thing, I hope! The challenge at Alter It Monthly is 'Shrines, Nichos, Altars and Dream Boxes' and this is my interpretation.
I've created the box by cutting a 4 inch square of card and using the rusted enamel technique (from yesterday's post). Liking to think that I am green, and not having a box to hand, I have used old packing foam to build up the back of the frame and attach my image to the back.
The little owl is an Inkadinkadoo stamp which I've water coloured and added Rocky Candy Distress Stickles to make him look feathery. The leaves have all been punched from K&Co scraps and there are some of my favourite little black butterflies in there too.
Finally, I've added the 'wisdom' text from a Brenda Pinnick pack and the 'follow you heart' from a Girls Paperie pack.

Challenges: (max 3 as stipulated by the alter it team)

Alter It Monthly - Shrines, dream boxes, niches and altars
Sir Stampalot - All creatures great and small
Simon Says - Anything but a card

This is just a darling little piece - I would love it!! I especially like the leaves punched from patterned paper - so effective! And I am right with you about re-using packaging - my OH keeps every box for me to inspect in case I can find a use for it!!Off to check out that rusted enamel technique.
