Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 17

This weeks challenge is "Inside - Out".

I suddenly thought of a blank paper mache book that I have sat on the shelf in my little hide away, just the thing for this challenge!
It has taken me all day, I might add, the family have not really seen me except to wash the mess off my hands, brushes, mats, sponges and anything else that got in the way!
Its quite an Autumnal look - sub-consciously I think the bad weather has affected my choice of paint and paper!
I used Anita's Antique white acrylic paint to cover the whole thing and then distressed the box with inks and metallic wax.
The papers used are from K & Co and the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The stamps are from Graphicus and are Elusive Images, Tall Trees stamp plate and the butterflies are from Clarity Stamps.
My little butterfly chipboard is ScarpFX - beautiful chipboard products - Graphicus sell them too!

Well, thats the weekend over, the "W" thing tomorrow - keeps me out of the shops though!
although not quite true - the internet is open anytime!!!

TTFN - everyone have a good week.
