christmas wishes box....Tim Holtz style...

Hi there everyone ....another post from me today.....
Here is a little treasure book box I have altered in the style of the one and only Mr Tim Holtz.....or Lord Tim Holtz as I believe is now his official title.......

This is for the following challenges.
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tim Holtz style
The Shaby Tea Rooms - a little bit of metal (box corner, jingle bell on tag+ wishes text)

Here is my christmas wishes treasure box , I have made this so my children can put there christmas wishes in so Santa can fetch them something nice.....

This was a paper substrate blank book box
I bought from Hobby craft.


I added lots of disress inks ,perfect pearls crackle glaze


I then made a tag and added some more distress inks ans perfect pearls...
and a nice vintage stamped Santa image...
Ohhh and some stickles..

Other additions include some gems ,a  big glittered chipboard scrolly thingy, and some fibre and jingly bell on the tag...
The text on the box reads...'.He's making his list and checking it twice'  ( not as easy to read with all the crackle glaze....
Hopefully this isTim Holtz styleeeeee enough to enter the challenge.
Thank you again for popping over

This is adorable, and so creative! I love all the blending of distress inks on here with the crackle finish. Makes this look so vintage. Fabulous Santa image, too. Thanks for joining us this week in the Tea Room.
