Safe Haven (A Giveaway)

Recently I mentioned that for my 300th post I would have a little Giveaway. A bit later than intended but on what is my 306th post here is the item I am giving away, an altered box (which I will fill with bits ‘n’ bobs).
 To coincide with Pink Saturday the box was painted with a favourite pink acrylic, Portrait Pink, a beautiful soft peachy pink.
Stamping and Old White Patina paint decorate the box and lace rims the lid to soften the edges. Lace will most certainly be an item that I will pop inside the box as part of this Giveaway.
An aspect that I love about crafting is that we can take practical but sometimes, essentially boring items such as  boxes and turn them into something pretty.
On the lid, stamping and a piece of ledger, this is from Divas D’Este’s Old Receipts CS. The image, which I absolutely love is from Divas D’Este’s Fanciful Mini Women, which as with the cards in a previous post (see “Fanciful Women”), is a transparency.  This image is layered onto another receipt from Old Receipts CS before being inserted into a metal bookplate painted with various paints, acrylics and patinas. Of course there had to be more lace and a flower.
If you would like to win this and whatever I fill it with then all you need do is leave me a comment. If you wish to sign up for e-mail notification (the equivalent of Following me) then that would be lovely but not necessary to have a chance of winning.
On May 22nd I will select a winner at random.
I am of course linking this to Beverley’s Pink Saturday.
