Hot Chocolate Box 2

....and so I have decorated another of my daughter's mini hot chocolate boxes that she received for Christmas. I love these little boxes, such a cute size, they are made from great quality card and so are a delight to paint and work on.
I decorated my first box in pinks and oranges and added stamped little piggies here.

 Well, for this box, I started with some hand-drawn flowers on dictionary paper and neo-color crayoned them - I've made a few of these flowers recently and found the idea on Anna Friesen's blog called Artful Stories here. I didn't exactly copy her idea but tweeked it a bit - anyway love these flowers.

Then the boxes were first gessoed - painted with turquoise and white Paperartsy paints - and finally white embossed and stamped with a brown ink using the fabulous Ellen Vargo EEV02 shape stamps.
Then everything was assembled....and voila! Pretty pleased with the result.
