Orchid Treasure Box – Painting and Decoupage (Cutie cu orhidee - decupaj)

As promised, I have come back to show you the matching treasure box for the invitations in the previous post. It was a quick one because quick was all the time I had :)
Still I really love the result. Especially the two-color blending which is something that I tried for the first time. The heart shaped window is going to have a picture underneath. I would have put something different instead, but I was pretty sure they wanted a picture and I was right. The orchid image comes from a printed handmade paper I had bought for this project. I used decoupage glue to adhere it to the box.
I’ll have a similar project to share next week, but it will be green with tulips.
Thanks for looking.

Dupa cum am promis, iata cutia asortata cu invitatiile din articolul anterior. Am avut destul de putin timp la dispozitie, asa ca a trebuit sa lucrez mai repede decat imi place. Totusi sunt foarte multumita de rezultat si mai ales de tehnica amestecarii a 2 culori pe care am incercat-o pentru prima data. Prin fereastra in forma de inima se va vedea o poza. As fi pus altceva in loc de poza, dar eram destul de sigura ca viitori stapani vor dori o poza si am avut dreptate. Am decupat imaginea cu orhidee dintr-o coala de hartie fabricata manual pe care o cumparasem special pentru acest proiect.
Saptamana viitoare voi reveni cu un proiect asemanator, dar va fi de culoare verde si cu lalele.
Multumesc pentru vizita.

Ohhhhhhhhhh myyyyyyyyyyy!
Meda .. the orchid is splendid! How intuitive of you to sense that they would prefer a picture in the open heart space! No wonder your business continues to blossom! I'm tickled for you!

Gorgeous! Your paint mixing is perfect! I know how hard it is to do without everything getting muddy. The decoupage work is beautifully done. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, I'm glad I stopped by yours, you do great work! I'll be back!
