Still 'Anything Goes' @ Marvelous Magnolia

Hi all! 
You've still got a week to enter everyone's favourite challenge over at 
Anything Goes!

Whoohoo, I love this theme!
I made a secret treat box thingy and added a couple of extra bits to it to make it look like a beach hut.
*Warning - this post is picture heavy!!

I covered the basic treat box in a mixture of papers - SU, Magnolia and unknown. I designed some steps and added fence doohickey to the sides. The door is more SU paper with a button handle with doohickey Tildas lace border and WOC flowers across the top. The roof is more Tildas lace doohickey cut from a Raspberry Road paper. Bikini Tilda is coloured with Distress Inks and added pearl pen to her anklets.

Salute Tilda is coloured with DI's and gel pen on her buttons. Behind Tilda I used a brad a a nail to pin the cheesecloth up as fishing net, tied an anchor charm to the net and added moss, starfish and shells.

This is Splash Tilda minus the splash lol! After colouring her with DI's I cut her out and stuck her to some black card. The window shape and shutters are from Magnolias romantic window stamp, all stamped and cut out onto black or white card. I used some more paper for the middle of the shutters. The window sill is another strip of Tildas lace doohickey and finished with more WOC flowers.

This pic is just to show the dimension of the shutters stuck off from the box sides.

Tilda on the beach was again coloured with DI's and I added a piece of SU paper cut from Tim Holtz scrollwork die to make it look like Tilda is dipping her toes in the sea.

The inside of the box when open. I had to create a roof  which wouldn't get in the way of opening and closing the box and finally came up with this design.

The four sides......

Hi Nicola,
What a fab 3D project! I was amazed already when I saw the first image and then there were 3 more sides! The stairs are so cute, that's probably my favourite side of this box, but the window side is great as well. Perfect decorations and what a lovely project to enter into LLC's "By the Sea" challenge. Thanks so much for linking up.

Hugz, Sandy
