Crafty Angels Weekly Challenge - #3 Embossing

This week over on the Crafty Angels Blog our challenge is "Embossing". I couldn't resist making up a gift box with the Sizzix Bigz Die "Box #3". So I used some embossed cardstock to create the box and then added some of the Magnolia Papers (coming soon to Crafty Angels). I have decorated the box with a couple of Magnolia stamps from the Yummy Tummy collection (also coming soon to Crafty Angels). The images have been coloured with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/R20
Hair - E50/E51/E31
Headscarf - E04
Clothes - E04/E93
Shoes - E77
Spoon - E57/R59
Label - E04/E93/R59/YG03

I have added some flowers from the Prima "E Line" range plus another Prima (Lisle multi) to the centre. I finally finished off the top with a Cuttlebug butterfly. The butterfly is from a set that has one cutting die and four embossing ones, and I then added some DecoArt "Diamond Dust" to the wings to make them sparkly.
Below is a picture from the side.....to which I also added some Stampin' Up choc chip taffeta ribbon tied in a bow.
I am loving this new Bigz Die, and think you will be seeing many more boxes from me over the coming months....I just won't be able to resist

CUTE CUTE - I just made a handmade box (using nestabilities as a lid) but as it has been entered in a competition I cannot show it for another week - but then it will be at my blog. Challenge was to make a monocromatic box. Only the leaves on a prima flower was allowed in a different colour than the one you picked. I had great fun making it.
