Gift It ~ Quixotic Challenge

It's time for Quixotic Challenge and this weeks' has been set by the wonderful Rowena...

Create a gift project - calendar/candle/trinket box/wall hanger/etc.
The Design Team have some wonderful inspiration to share...
I thought I would try my hand at altering an ornate plate, it's a little something I saw at Ally Pally show and as I have a melt pot I HAD to try...
I've melted some cosmic shimmer embossing powder and poured into the plate, then dropped in the rose charm waited for it to cool then secured the back.
I have inked up this little angel charm to age and distress it, so it toned in with the ornate plate!
Also the ball chain was shockingly bright and clean so I inked that up too!
The box has been cut and inked, I decided to stamp the sentiment on the inside...
then the beautiful tree & birds silhouette on the box top.
Supplies: Patterned Paper: fancy pants: roadshow;
Stamps: Paper Makeup: Nature's song set;
Ink: Memento: black; Ranger: distress inks: vintage photo; Alcohol inks;
Dies: Sizzix: shaker box;
Other: Tim Holtz: ornate plate; jump rings; trinket charms; ball chain; Cosmic shimmer: embossing powder; paint dabber; melt pot;

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!!!
