New Challenge #129 at Glitter N Sparkle

So Sorry It's Late,
And there was me being so good and thinking I had
got everything sorted  before I went away
visiting family for the weekend.
Then I came home for the Dentist (URGGG)
and realised that nothing had posted.

Anyway for this weeks Project I decided
to fulfil my partners 12 year old Nephew's request
that he asked me if I could make.
He wanted a Storage/Money Box,
('But it has to be a boy one Auntie Sam')
so he can save all his important stuff in.

The Theme at
Shaped Cards/Non Cards

Our Sponsors this week are:-

A Day For Daisies who are offering
a $12 Gift Certificate for their store.

2 Cute Ink who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Sweet Pea Stamps who are offering
4 Images from their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Ancient One Digi Stamp
from Joanne Schempp's 
at Sweet Pea Stamps
(one of our sponsors)

To make this I 
used the Treasured Template
(My Time Made Easy - Pretty Packaging)
Hand cutting it all out using Dark Brown Card for the Base
and Dark Gold Pearlised Card for the accessories
(both Card from my stash).
The Paper I used was Natural Dark Wood - Maruti Texture
(which I found on the Internet)
an I cut out 'single boards' to make the Bands 
that go down the side of the Panels,
and across the Lid Top.

Next I printed the Image out
  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                           Face -             Vanilla
                                                                                   Dusky Rose (Cheeks)
                                                                                   Cyan (Eyes)
                                                                                   Cool Grey 2 (Tattoo)
                                                                                   Cool Grey 5 (Tattoo)
                                                                                   Cinnamon (Beard)
                                                           Hair -              Cinnamon
                                                                                   Burnt Sienna
                                                           Top -              Denim Blue
                                                                                   China Blue
                                                           Hat -               Denim Blue
                                                                                   China Blue
                                                                                   Cool Grey 1
                                                                                   Cool Grey 4
                                                                                   Cool Grey 5
                                                           Jewelry -       Pastel Beige
And I used a Metallic Gold Gel Pen for his Earring,
and the Gold Badges on his Jacket and Hat.

Next I stamped the Pirate Rubber Stamp Set
(Fun Factory),
so I have 2 Chests, 2 Flags and 1 Ship.
I used Tuxedo Black Ink
And coloured them in with my Promarkers.
I then cut my Image out in a large S shape
and for the Stamps just wiggly edges,
except the Flags which I fussy cut out.
Then I got all technical and dabbed
a cold Teabag over all of the paper.

I then distressed all the edges with some scissors,
then using Vintage Photo Distressed Ink
(Tim Holtz)
I flicked it against all the Edges to make it look Old.
Then I rolled the top and bottom edges 
of the Image to make it look like a scroll.

For the Flags I stuck them to Silver Pins,
and curled the paper.

And finally I added an Antique Gold Key
to the corner of the Image for the 'Lock'.

All Costume Jewelry is my own, 
for the 'Treasure'.
