Orchid Vignette Box

 Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share a cool vignette box that I made for a friend of mine. :)  My friends loves and takes care of orchids-so I had to make sure I incorporated that into this box. It was a thank you from me to her. Sometimes cards just aren't enough ;)

So here is the vignette box:

I made these orchids using a silhouette design store file and wilted violet and wild honey distress oxide inks. The leaves are from a tim holtz funky floral die cut set and I trimmed the leaves to look like this. I did a little paper shaping, also.  I used a botanical rub on on from tim holtz in the background.

This is an adornment metal charm from tim holtz. I made it purple with alcohol ink.  And the dreamer of dreams is another rub on from a different set. 

There's another picture of the orchids because I love how they turned out. They are in a little tim holtz jar (corked vials) and I glued the stem to the side of the jar to keep the orchids from moving around.

The background is a tim holtz wallpaper that I colored with vintage photo and broken china distress oxide. The bird is clay and made from a mod podge mold. I painted it with a finnabair sparks paint-butterfly spells.

Rust! I love to create rust! I used finnabairs 3 paint/paste rust effects. This is over a clip thing that has a whole in it. Originally, it was an orange clip from Making Memories. Then I painted black gesso over it and clipped it to the side. I made the rust happen and used extra jump rings for the time coin and antique gem- both are tim holtz.

Here's a side view.  I sprayed stormy sky distress oxide spray onto the box so it has a blue tint.

Look at that rust!

Another view.  The paper doll is from tim holtz.

This is the 2nd smallest vignette box that Tim sells. I also added antique glass glitter from Melissa Francis along the corner on the left and the bottom.  I feel that I need more glitter in my life and used it here. :)

I am submitting this cool vignette box into the following challenges:
