1. The starting point is a wooden tray that held embellishments. Carefully cut the top middle section away to give space for the dragon and glue it to the bottom to give a larger base.

2. Paint the box with Distress paints and allow to dry.

3. Stamp the tentacles image from the Ship Captain plate onto the sides randomly using the Jet Black Archival Inkpad.

4. Cut two pieces of white card to fit the side apertures. Stamp the lady from the Presenters set onto one, masking of the hat before inking with the Jet Black Archival Inkpad. Stamp the Ship Captain onto the other adding the flying birds too.

5. Colour the images with Distress marker and water.

6. Die cut two pieces of Trellis using the die and grey board. Cut to size and shape to fit each aperture. Use Treasure Gold to give the look of metal.

7. Die Cut and make a rose using the Tattered Florals Die and colour with the Metallic Distress paint and Treasure Gold.

To assemble:

Glue the images into the apertures.

Add some old jewellery to create a crown for the ‘Elven Queen’
