I don’t know about you but I get carried away when each new release of Magnolia stamps comes out. I find new favourites in each collection and have less time to design with my old favourites. Well, this year I’ve set myself a challenge, to ink up at least one old favourite each month and create something Just because…

I had such fun with the last one I decided to create another Explosion Box, This one is a little bigger to accommodate my cradle, I’ve used a 5” cube as the base, I’ve chosen Tingla In Bunny Slippers from my large collection of wonderful Magnolia stamps and created a baby themed box:

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes and balloons: R85, R83, R81, R0000, W3, W1, W00

This is a bit picture heavy but I wanted to show you all the angles. From the side it looks like this:

And the front:

When you take the lid off the box opens up to reveal the little surprise inside, this is the view from the top:
