A Two-Fer! A Party Animal Pencil Box!

Hi! This pencil box meets two challenges! Actually, a contest and a challenge. Blockheads Paper Arts has a contest running to create something using either Blockhead or Lost Coast Stamps.

Alison, who is on Smeared & Smudged AND is one of the monthly Bombshell Stamps Pin-Ups, told me about a current challenge over at Stamp Insanity to create something that holds something.

I decided to use my Lost Coast Party Hat Cats and Wing Set (on the cat in the glass) to decorate a pencil box, which was plain black in its original incarnation.

I stamped the cats (with the wings added to one) onto plain white cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I used Sakura glitter markers to add some bling and Glaze pens to add some dimension to the cats' eyes and to the glass.

The patterned paper is from Crafty Secrets and I think it works perfectly with these fun party animals. I used Copper Stickles to add some bling/interest to the edges and to camouflage some rough edges.

Thanks for visiting today!
