Stampotique Boxes Challenge

Honey loved taking boris the spider for a walk but all the other furrys had to stay indoors as they wanted to play too!

I love making boxes, any shape, colour, size, I was definitely inspired by the weather!
I cut the box on my Cricut, then coated the sides roughly with DecoArt gesso and stencilled the Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil onto the lid with modelling paste
Stamped Spider girl, Puss Puss, Kitty and Hare and the Calender Squares onto the sides and coloured with primary yellow acrylic and Quinacridone gold
The edges were distressed with Walnut Stain and Black Soot and topped with the large bumble bee


  1. Fabulous box! I love the honeycomb texture and the bee on top! Great little story too!

  2. Brilliant Jools, just popped over from FB.
    Love the texture on the top.
