Expressive Heart 1– by CS Designs

So, this another one of the beautiful images my CS Designs, and part of the Expressive Heart series.  I really stepped out of my comfort zone with this one.  I usually do just cards, of various folds and techniques, and the odd ornament, but I decided to try a treat box.  This box I am calling (for lack of a better name) a “Doll Treat Box”.  It’s kind of a little on the weird side, but I think my grand-daughter would appreciate it.  I have to say I had lots of fun making it.  I hope you like it too!

Well, I said it was kind of “funky”!  I guess it’s more of a bag than a box.  It is made with all my leftovers.  The image is colored with copics, and I added seed beads to the cheeks, and the face, in both pink and orange.  I used the Spellbinders oval and scalloped dies for the hands and feet, and the opening in the bag.  The hair is just some wired floral tape.
