Rose and dragonfly Trinket box. Designed for Happy Daze.


This is a simple small wooden cheese box painted in two layers.. distressed and then some sparkly ribbon attached.. what makes it special are the roses on top, with their deep layered frosting. These are By Prima "Belles artes scribe" and I got mine from Happy Daze. The light dusky green paint was allowed to dry and then a silver Dabber was dragged over it.. and rubbed off in patches to give a distressed shabby chic look.
