Frantage week: box and card

Hi :o)
Gio is with us today with a beautiful (not pink) altered box and a card (you know what? I think she is starting to enjoy making those cards lol). 
Now for the details on how she made it... 

I coloured the clear box putting some drops of Butterscotch, Yellow and Rust Ranger alcohol inks on the Tim Holtz ink applicator, and then patting it lightly on the surface.

I stamped the lady image from CI 335 - Perfumery Paris plate on a piece of gessoed paper, using Jet Black StazOn. I drew an oval and some swirls on the coloured lid with Glossy Accents, and I poured some Frantage Chiffon fragments: on the oval I used plain fragments, for the swirls I crumbled them to have more detailed swirls.
I glued down the stamped image, along with a thin stripe of gessoed music sheet.

The card: I coloured a piece of canvas with Distress Ink Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick and Spiced marmalade. I glued down the lady stamped with CI plate and Jet Black StazOn. I drew an oval with glossy Accents and I poured some crumbled Frantage Chiffon Fragments. I added a thin stripe of gessoed music sheet and I stamped the sentiment using Hobby Art Clear Stamps: Beauty collage.
