Du er mig saa smuk ved snee-lysets



Today is my last showpiece from the beautiful Fairy Tales & Myths’ collection at Simply B Stamps and features the lovely Snow Queen.


I decided to make a matchbox on which to place my Snow Queen, mostly because there’s a matchbox challenge over at the Flying Unicorn Forum and the image is so beautiful it deserved something more than a mere card.  Of course this is a Steampunk Snow Queen so my snowflakes include some tiny watch parts that I gessoed to look snowy.

I also applied a little gesso to the pearls and the snowflake I cut using a Spellbinders’ die.  The beautiful lace from Live & Love Crafts suited the image and feel I was going for perfectly.  With both my lace and pearls I am entering this in the current challenge at Time 4 Scrap.

This pretty little box needed some real bling to finish so my handle is made from a Swarovski crystal that I adhered to a Prima Junkyard Finding Facucet Handle, some more Steampunky metal goodness.  I love my metal embellies and metal also happens to be the current challenge at Top Tip Tuesday so I’m linking this up over there too.
