Altered box

Hello fellow Crafters,

I fancied doing something different and I had an empty (chocolates) box lying around so I decided to change it into this :

This box measures 18 x 18 cm. I started by painting two layers of gesso on it. After that dried I painted it with PaperArtsy Fresco paint in Ice Blue.  I used the following stamps:
Ink & the dog, Vintage, ID01 from PaperArtsy
Mini MN 29 also from Paperartsy
The main image was stamped on tissue paper and then adhered to the box, the rest of the stamps were stamped straight on the box. I also made some circles with a top from an empty tube and some white gesso. I finished it off with some paper flowers which were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and one paper and one metal embellishment !
Thanks for stopping by! 
Hope you like it ….
