An Altered Box

Hello to you all,I am sharing a wooden box that I have decorated. I have had it a while and wasn't sure what to do with it....The take it make it challenge this month is "Stamping on Tissue Technique"...I have done this a bit like the Decopatch you see around only I have used white tissue paper and stamped on my own images...
I started by giving my box a coat of Gesso followed by some Wedgwood blue acrylic...I then rubbed it down with some glass paper to distress it slightly....
I measured the top and sides,cut my tissue and stamped my images with Cornflower Blue Archival ink. I have used stamps from Unity and  Crafty individuals I then stuck the tissue down with some watered down PVA glue
I edged it with Black Soot  and added some lace.
The inside got the same treatment.xxx

I am entering this into
Take It Make It "Stamping on Tissue"
Brown Sugar "Use Lace"
Simply Create Too "Show something New" (My Box)
