pirate's booty...

Alpha Stamps has an awesome kit out this month with lots of pretty undersea inspired goodies in it. It's called Beneath the Sea Kit and can be found here. I was so inspired by the lush teal color in the kit I just had to make something with it!
 I LOVE the Mini Kraft Treasure Chest that comes in the kit!
I was able to make this awesome pirate's chest by covering the box with images from the Treasure Chests Trims Collage Sheet.
 I simply glued the box together, inked any edges that might show and cut the pieces out as shown above. (I did use two copies of the collage sheet to have enough of the black image though.)
Don't you just adore the new Chipboard Mermaids Miniatures?! I used black satin spray paint to give them a quick coat of color.
I hinged the Arch Top Reliquary - Triptych with a set of 1 Inch Fancy Metal Box Hinges so that it would stand on its own.
Then I made a base out of 8x8 Heavy Chipboard and covered it with paper from the kit.
That nifty Under the Sea Chipboard Border was designed by moi :)
I'm pretty happy with how it all went together and I hope I've inspired you to go out and make something undersea inspired with one of our kits or other new goodies. 
Here's a list of all of the supplies I used to help you shop ;)
