Sunday Stamper Tea Box

I have a little tea box to share today that I finally finished decorating for a December birthday.
The undecorated box came from Cuddly Buddly and I decorated it loosely following the instructions for one of Hels projects in the October 2011 issue of Craft Stamper magazine.
The box was painted with Claudine Helmuth Gesso before colouring with various Distress Inks and Stains.
All of the stamps are from Pink Paislee.  They have been one of my most used stamp purchases this year so I can't wait to see what they come up with for 2012.
The plate was glued on top of a scrap of paper and then onto the box using Glossy Accents.  After adding the Sassafras letters I filled in the whole thing with more gloss.
Here it is once it has dried.  I think the book plate came from an old HOTP kit, but I have had it quite a while and don't remember.

You might have spotted on my sidebar that I've had my Jingle Tilda card chosen in the top 3 for challenge #61 over at the iCopic blog, as you can imagine I'm thrilled, so I just had to mention it again here!!!
