Wednesday stamper challenge - Opening






Wednesday stamper has got some really fun challenges. This weeks challenge is "opening". Now there is lots of openings I could think of making something of, but what hit me first was my love for boxes of all kinds. I have for many years collected small boxes from all over the world when I have been around on one of my trips. Boxes made of silver, wood, mother of pearl, cloissoné. And now cardboard...
I love the feeling of opening my boxes. I have long ago put something in them and forgotten about it. And it is with a great deal of amusement and excitement I open them, finding long lost treasures.
This is my box. A cardboard box decorated with an old page from a book, flowers, some silver. The inside is painted with crackled paint from Rangerink and the inside of the lid has got a stamped saying... True friendship is one of life's true treasures. And that is true isn't it?

Wednesday Stamper har noen skikkelig kule utfordringer, og denne ukes utfordring er "åpning". Her er mitt bidrag med en pappboks dekorert med litt blonder, gammelt papir, og masse, masse distressing. Jeg elsker skrin og bokser. Jeg samler på dem. Jeg har skrin fra Spania, Kina, Hellas, Russland, Israel. Jeg putter dem full av hemmeligheter, rare småting. Glemmer at jeg har lagt noe i dem, og spenningen er stor når jeg åpner dem etter en stund og finner glemte ting, ting jeg har lett etter veldig lenge og ikke ante jeg hadde.
Så dette er skrinet mitt. Nok en ting å putte rare ting i.
