For today’s Tutorial from the Archives in the weekly inkling I picked Jenn‘s darling 2, 5, 7, 10 box. For my sample for the video, I chose JustRite Stampers new Birdhouse set. I love birdhouses and these are a lot of fun to color.

I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed it with Classic Circle Nestabilities and colored it with Copic Markers ( House: B32, B34, N4, Y43, Y35, Y38, YR14,    Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17,    Flowers: R02, R05, R08,   Flower Center: YR14, E09, E29,    Dragonfly: Y11, YG03,   Background shading: W00, W1, self mixed marker 1/5th YR31, 4/5th Blending solution).

The image was adhered to a bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock, cut and embossed with scallop circle Nestabilities. The edges of the image layer were paper pierced.

For the box base I chose a 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock. The flap was decorated with a 3″ long strip of white cardstock cut with the Faux Crochet Die-namics Border die. The box is held close with May Arts Gingham ribbon.

A 2″ x 3″ strip of Echo park “For the Record” paper was adhered to the box front before the image layers were taped down with dimensionals. Silver Recollection pearls finish off the box front.

The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers new Cling stamp set called Fancy Tags. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut with JustRite’s new Spellbinders dies called Nested Sentiment dies.
