Tuesday Taggers Pandoras box!

Our newest Teamie Georgina chose this fabulous theme and I have so enjoyed playing around with this. I was up till the wee small hours on Saturday playing with these fabulous graphic 45 papers from here
The papers are all bits left over from other projects - even the book box was although its so long ago I painted it I have no idea what I was going to use it for!

I added the Graphic 45 logo on the book spine as it seemed to fit the bill perfectly!

and as we had to make something handmade to put in the box I have made a little tag book. It would have been perfect for atcs however it is just a little too narrow to fit them in.

To create the stamped background I have used a set of children's halloween stamps I bought years ago from Baker Ross - they have really come into their own this year as I have used them more and more. That spiders web is a brilliant background stamp and I have also used my well loved Tim Holtz crackle stamp underneath that as well. Inks used momento tuxedo black and peeled paint distress ink.

These pumpkins are from the same set - they look ghoulishly wicked don't they? Card stock is from stampin up - old olive and pumpkin pie

This face is from a stamp set owned by my pal Michelle - she let me stamp some images a while ago. The rabbit below is too!

The little clock face was from The Stamp Man.

And the Jabberwocky finishes the book.
Thanks for a wonderful theme Georgina it really was fun. I have made it as a gift so I hope its liked as much as I liked making it!
