Inkurable Stampers May Entry

I've said it before, there's never enough hours in the day to do all that I WANT to do, but I try !  
Finally, here's my entry for this month's great theme of "Food, Glorious Food" over at INKURABLE STAMPERS.  
A while ago I came across a small boxed set of recipes at a garage sale (I'm no great cook, so I love the fact that I can pretend to be one by keeping lots of cookbooks around, but they take up a lot of space, so this was perfect for me LOL!)

I started by cutting out my own template for an ATC-sized box, and covering it with some plain white tissue paper which I had stamped using StaZon ink, I then added some Distress ink (Vintage photo) and cut the postage shape out with a CB die, and the closure edge was cut with an Alterations die, I then added magnet strips for the closure.     I stamped the "top secret" image onto a piece of acetate using StaZon ink (royal purple) and stamped the teapot (Oxford Impressions Classic Alice) onto the box before assembling.      I then stamped various images from THIS fun set ( by Darkroom Door ) onto some white cs, cutting them & adding them to the assembled box (there's nothing like new rubber to get you in the stamping mood : )       I then remembered a own a fork and knife clear stamp (an old set from Studio Astarte) so I used some Versamark ink and some pewter embossing powder, and added these to my finished box, and here's the result... 

 I think this looks way better than the original box, don't you think so?     There's still a few days left to enter this great challenge, all you need is to follow the theme and use at least one stamp of your choice, couldn't be easier : )    For all the details, follow THIS link,  you have until the end of the month to join in, and as always, Sarah has three very generous sponsors who provide great incentives for you to play along, so go forth and CREATE, your stamps will thank you : )
