Cherub Gift Box

This is another of my projects for Not Just Cards this month.  I made this gift box using a digital image from Delightful Digis'  Angel and Cherub collection.    

Here are additional views of the gift box.

I started my project by painting a kraft box with a couple of different colours of grey paint and edging the sides with Soot Distress Ink. My next step was to rubber stamp a flourish image all over the box giving the box an old look to it.  I coloured my Cherup image with a light colouring of Copic Markers and then applied sugaring to the complete image.  

To complete the project I added a die cut "love" and a fabric sweater enclosure to the front to the box.   I like the antique look for the box.  I think it is a nice effect to go with the image.   Thank you for stopping by and I hope we have lots of creativity today.
