Just Add Ink #174 - Chalk & Clay

Another fabulous challenge from the Just Add Ink Team this week had me keen to join along!  With gorgeous colours & new toys to play with, I created these little boxes:-

I used a chocolate mould to create the seahorse & cone shell from Simply Pressed Clay. They were coloured with an aquapainter & ink, then spritzed with shimmer spray.

Both the box lids & bases were stamped with images from the Going Grunge set & the sentiment panels came from the Chalk Talk set.

The best part (other than being able to give them to the two lovely ladies that I had lunch with today :) ), was that these sweet little boxes of Guylian chockies fitted perfectly inside. (I could say it was cleverly planned that way, but it was just a very happy coincidence!)

(oops, a fuzzy phone camera photo, but you get the idea!)  :)
