Mark’s Finest Papers


For today’s Blog Hop I made this tissue box for my cousin’s Birthday. She is crazy about elephants and this new set “African Velt” available now with 3 other new sets at Mark’s Finest Papers.
This is a GORGEOUS set so make sure to check it out.
For the cs I used Snow White, China Blue Eyes and black.
I made the box out of solid white the layered on the blue and black panels.
I used a punch for the design on the lid and a round Nestie for the tissue hole.
The bottom border was created by using a punch and offsetting two layers of the black and blue to create a shadowed effect. Sorry, it does not show well on the photo.
For the main panel I inked the images in Palette Noir black and sponged some of the black around the edges.
I think that my cousin with like it with the matching card that I made last week for the Sneak Peek.
Good luck to all of the Blog Hoppers, Nicky
