The Stamp Man Challenge #30 - Travel

I love having a go at The Stamp Man Challenge as it's usually a chance to get a bit dirty and grungy. I decided to have a go at a box for a change. 
I coloured the box with a combination of Distress Stains and Inks. The stamping was done using Rangers Archival Coffee ink. This is definitely one ink pad I could not manage without. The background stamp came from the Stampers Anonymous set" Papillon". The car and quote are both from Stampers Anonymous "Road Trip".  I added some flourishes with gold ink and embossed with gold powder.

Travel Box
I used gold ink and antique gold embossing to add some texture to the PARIS plate and to the keyhole on the side of the box.

I can't manage the hinges myself, so hopefully I can talk my hubby into doing those for me. I am very fortunate... I have spent the afternoon in my craft room while Graham is cooking. He is really good. Tonight's dishes are all Spanish. I recently bought him Rick Steins new book.

I think I might give this to my son for all the foreign coins he has lying around his room!!
Hope you are all having a good weekend.
